As a lover of books, I’m a huge advocate of reading to children. Momma Don’t You Worry is a lovely little story, set in rhyme, with a positive message. This book is suitable for adults to read to young children, as well as for older children to read on their own.
It’s common for children to test boundaries and to look for ways to be more independent. They might not always understand why it’s important to be led by the hand by mom or dad while out in public. Momma Don’t You Worry gently teaches children why this is so necessary. The story is told from the perspective of a six-year-old, out with his mother for a day at the mall. At first, he can’t understand why his mother needs to hold his hand so tightly – surely he’s too old for this. But when he gets separated from mom the answer is clear. Lesson learned.
I’d recommend Momma Don’t You Worry for parents, teachers, daycare providers and others who might be looking for new and interesting ways to teach children the importance of staying close to parents, as well as what to do should they ever become lost.
