Early Praise for Why Does Mommy Have Tattoos?
“Why Does Mommy Have Tattoos? is an imaginative book about diversity, and is written to encourage kids and parents to be anything they want to be with or without tattoos.” —Kirstie Kovats, INKED MAGAZINE
“Marilyn, with her own remarkable collection of tattoos, feels it’s important for kids to know that “tattoos are simply an art form, a very beautiful art form,” and she draws from her own experiences and channels the discrimination and stigma she faced into an important lesson for the younger generation.” —Olivia Cassano, KONBINI
“The book, full of original illustrations by Marilyn herself, will teach kids one big lesson — “that tattoos don’t make people bad, they’re just art.” And Marilyn, with her own beautiful collection of tattoos, feels it’s important to let her baby readers know just that.”—Mallory Llewellyn, GALORE
“Lost to Mario Kart and MySpace. Did Justin Bieber kill the children’s book? Luckily, the answer is a resounding “NO!” Thanks to rock star artists like Marilyn Rondon.” —Jason Goldwatch, MASS APPEAL
