THE POCKET MOMMY
Saying goodbye to Mom at the kindergarten door can be tough. Samuel hates it and wishes he could have a tiny, pocket-sized mommy to carry around with him all day. His mom slips a pretend mommy into his pocket, and when she comes to life, Samuel is delighted . .. at first. But he soon discovers that having a mom along in kindergarten isn’t as much fun as he thought it would be. Sure, she helps him remember the words to songs and keeps him company. But she also rearranges the bookshelf, corrects his artwork, and tries to clean out the guinea pig cage—all with disastrous (and comic) results. An energetic romp with a sweet core, The Pocket Mommy follows one little boy as he navigates the age-old conflict between the comfort of the familiar and the joy of letting go.
I know most of our readers homeschool, but many have kids in traditional schools as well. Regardless, all parents have times when their little ones just do not want to say good-bye, be it starting a new school or taking a class in a co-op or even staying at the baby sitter’s while Mom and Dad are out. The Pocket Mommy is a great story that helps kids transition through these times. and now you can win your very own copy!
