“Elizabeth Mosier’s wisdom about families comes through on every page of The Playgroup. I highly recommend this touching, compelling book about motherhood and about the human heart.”

Robin Black, If I Loved You, I Would Tell You This


The Playgroup is a moving and beguiling glimpse into the everyday miracle of motherhood. Mosier has created a neighborhood that includes the world, one beloved child at a time.” 

Antonya Nelson, Bound, Nothing Right
