Excerpt from My Mom’s Not Cool:

Every day when I wake up, my mom makes me eat breakfast. I’m not allowed to eat macaroni and cheese for breakfast. My friend Samantha can eat whatever she wants for breakfast, and she doesn’t even have to sit down. Her mom is so cool. My mom’s not cool.

About the Book

This Mother’s Day, Rubi Nicholas, winner of the 2006 TV reality series”Search for the Funniest Mom in America” releases her first illustrated children’s book, “My Mom’s Not Cool.” The book is published by Denver publisher Blueline Publishing and illustrated by Denver-based nationally-known illustrator and journalist, Maia Chavez Larkin. This completely original book, based on the author’s own children, tells the story of a little girl who thinks all the other moms she sees are way cooler than her own mom. The voice of the little girl is echoed by young readers and moms alike as a “must read,” by school counselors, psychologists and little girl critics as well!

About the Author

As a first-generation American Muslim woman of Pakistani descent, Rubi Nicholas is the antithesis of what one would expect with such a strong ethnic background. Born into a culture steeped in the tradition of the quiet, compliant female, Rubi breaks the mold. Far from choosing the typical life as an obedient wife, she has walked a variety of career paths, chosen a non-traditional family route and now has succeeded in breaking even more rules as a stand-up comedian.

Selected in 2006 as Nick@Nite’s “Funniest Mom in America,” Rubi demonstrated that her unique point of view and warm, friendly style can bring together all kinds of people through her charming charisma and clear sense of timing.

Rubi’s humor incorporates her ethnic heritage, her family life as a corporate woman whose husband is a stay-at-home dad, and the antics of their two little girls. Her ability simultaneously to weave her story, to allow the audience into her life, and to reveal the ways in which we can all find common ground is a remarkable talent. From politics to parenting, culture clashes to kids, Rubi understands what makes us laugh.

Originally from Pennsylvania, Rubi lives with her husband and girls in Castle Rock, Colorado. She has an MBA in management information systems and two MS degrees from Temple University, and a BA from Villanova.

    I loved this book! I really did go through some of these things. I couldn’t get my ears pierced and I couldn’t stay up late… but there is always something unique about your mom that no other mom has and this book really showed it.

    This story provides a pure and heartwarming lesson to parents and children alike on what it really looks like to love.

    :

    As one definitely ‘not cool’ mom of young girls, I love that this is one of our favorite reads at night. Both my 7- and 9-year-olds ask for it over and over again! It has allowed us to dialogue and joke about it when Mom does one of her uncool things. As a somewhat ‘cooler’ (I hope) psychologist, I am so eager to share this book with the many parents and ‘tweens – especially mothers and daughters–who struggle constantly with separation and individuation.

    Every kid should have this book to know that her mom may not be cool but she still loves you.

    This book is a must-read for all mothers and daughters! I had tears of joy and laughter in my eyes. I am saving a copy for my daughters to read with their daughters

    The basic needs of children for love and security do not ever change, even when their environment and experiences do. As a mother of two daughters and an early childhood educator, I found this to be a wonderful story focusing on a child’s social and emotional development, and on a mother and daughter’s forever enduring love.
