This book has so many sweet life lessons, and heartwarming stories of a wise, thoughtful, and purpose-driven mother. If you are a soon-to-be- mother, mother, or grandmother, it is a must read. I think it is a wonderful reminder to keep the goal in sight. Katrin's mother is not reactionary. She is careful in all of her disciplines and advice.
In a series of short, witty stories, Ms. Forbes takes the immigrant Mama and Papa and their American-born children through the years of the children's growing-up into their young adulthood. Despite its shortness, the book has unity over a long span of time --- long because measured by the children's growing up. One of the great strengths of this book is that Ms. Forbes shows how the children respond to Mama by becoming persons of integrity.
(I know there is a movie based on these stories, but I remember mainly the TV series of the 50's called "I Remember Mama". I wonder if the program is on DVD now.)
