I’ll be the first to admit, I’m a paranoid mother. I have unfounded fears about something not nice happening to my daughter when she’s not with me. When she’s out on a school-trip, I actually count the hours till she’s back safe in our home. When we’re out walking the dog in our little village, I hold her hand. I know when she’s with her dad, he lets her run ahead without him, but she’s a good girl. She knows when to stop and wait for her dad. Somehow she knows that when she’s with me, she’s not allowed to do that. She holds my hand even without me telling her to do so.
Momma Don’t you Worry by Louie Lawent, is a sweet-very easy book to read to your little ones. It explains the importance for children to listen to their parents and hold their hands when out in big crowds, without scaremongering. The words have a nice rhythm to it, which of course will appeal to children, as it did with little T, although I think she was just a little bit too young for the book.
However, little T still appreciated the story and understood what it meant. When I asked her what the story was all about, she said “It’s about a little boy who got lost because he didn’t want to hold his mummy’s hand”. Then she added, “I always hold your hand mummy”. She certainly does 🙂
The book is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble for only $1.29. So if you’re looking for a book to add to your collection, or if you have a stubborn little one who refuses to hold your hand, this might just be the perfect book to give to them.
What about you? Are you a paranoid mother too?
Disclaimer: Was sent a PDF copy by the author of the book for the purpose of this review, however opinions are by mine alone and of course, little T’s as well.
