Synopsis of Book
In That Mama is a Grouch, an intelligent and very wise narrator reminds us in charming rhyme that mothers are human, most often loving, and that certain situations will guarantee driving them to their breaking point. Children from three to seven will delight in this story of a mommy who’s nearly out of control, and they will learn the importance of something as simple as putting away toys.
I think that teachers will also find this book helpful when teaching children the importance of keeping the classroom tidy and safe.
I don't have a young child to share this book with, but it did bring back some memories of times when I was a grouch to my son, when he'd leave his toys lying all over the place. Perhaps if we'd had this book to read, we might have avoided some grouchy moments in my house. I recommend all parents, grandparents, and teachers share this book with the young children in their life.
