The message is delightfully conveyed, illustrations are fun, and the story is relatable to young children. The book not only entertained my child, but lead to a great conversation about rules, and feelings, and how to talk about what is bothering us together. My daughter did assure me, once we had finished our eighth reading that first day, that I myself am not a grouch, which was something that I was quite relieved to hear.
This is a story that all mothers will praise as it roots for them and stands up for their right to be grouchy when their kids do bad things. Kids will also get a kick out of this story as I'm sure they've done the things the little girl in this story has. And hopefully it'll teach them to have fun but to stay tidy and not do things they know they'll get in trouble for. At least to keep their mom from turning into a grouch.
*I was given a copy of this book by the author. This is an honest review.
I bought That Mama is a Grouch for my sister because she has young children, and they are expressive, saying exactly what they have on their minds. My sister, a teacher, likes to help her children to understand what they have read, and this book is one that helps parents and children to communicate better. Why is Mama a grouch in the child’s eyes? there's much to debate from child's point or view vice versa for the parent.
A carefree youngster feels her mother is always a grouch, never understanding that she only wants to be a kid and have fun. Then the mother explains why she’s grouchy and what the young girl can do to help her be a better mom.
Illustrator Don Berry does a wonderful job bring the story to life with his drawings. His beautiful, bright illustrations are filled with extensive details depicting the scene.
The author combines humor and understanding to illustrate mothers are humans capable of much love. But she also shows they do have breaking points when pushed to extremes.
THAT MAMA IS A GROUCH is a fun look at why mothers sometimes appear to be so unreasonable to a young child. This story is a good way to help parents stress certain rules to youngsters, as well as a fun way for them to learn as they read.
A delightful book for any library collection.
