A few months ago I was contacted by ebook author, Louie Lawent and asked if I would be interested in giving his book at look and review on my blog. So I obliged, because I thought it was a tremendous thing to write a book, for kids no less and publish it. The days of books being strictly in hard or paperback or long gone. I may not have the biggest, most popular blog but if I could help a fellow author out, why not?
Momma Don't You Worry is the story of a child who thinks he is too big for help from his momma and that she need not worry about his, as he is nearly 6. As a mother of a 6 year old the story spoke to me. We all want our babies to stay small and be able to always help them and yet they crave a certain amount of independence.
Mr. Lawent's story is a quick read with a lot of rhyming which will appeal to kids under the age of 8. It was a quick read and I was even able to get my six year old to read it to his little sister. The both got the lesson at the end of the book and it gave me a chance to open a discussion about age and help and independence. We also were able to talk about the emotions both characters might have been feeling at different parts of the story.
All in all a good quick read with an opportunity to expand on family discussions about feelings, rules and independence.
I was given a free copy of this ebook to review but all opinions are mine.
