Momma Don't You Worry (book review)
Momma Don't You Worry was written by Louie Lawent. I was provided with a copy in exchange for my honest book review. All opinions are my own.
About the book:
This illustrated books tells a poetic story from a six year old's viewpoint. His mother worries too much in his opinion, until they go on a shopping trip and he gets a real appreciation for just how right his mom is.
She watches me with eagle eyes Like I’m a treasured jewel She cramps my style, oh man alive “MOM, THIS JUST AIN’T COOL”
I have to say that we were VERY lucky in that Zoe and Ana were never ones to wander off. I have friends that aren't so lucky... and it is really scary when you suddenly realize you can find your child in the mall or Target.
Momma Don't You Worry is a short (VERY SHORT) book told for the child's perspective. I think I would have liked it more if it were longer. It could have been drawn out longer... with more explanations or tips on what to do if you find yourself lost. But, it could be a really great way for parents to start a talk with kids about the importance of staying close when you're out... and also what you should do if you get separated or lost. A great book to use with preschoolers and kindergarteners.
