"Momma don't you worry" by Louie Lawent

Momma Don’t You Worry” by Louie Lawent is an adorable tale about a 6 year old boy who thinks he is all grown up, and that his mom worries to much. He thinks it's uncool that he has to hold her hand when crossing the street, and that he has to stay close to her in the shopping mall. Of course, when mom's attention is diverted for a moment, off he wanders, and gets lost. He remembers what his mom taught him and is reunited with her quickly, but in the mean time he is scared and learns a lesson about trusting the mom knows best, and that maybe 6 isn't all grown up at all. The story is cute, and very well written. I think it's a good way to re-enforce the message about not running off, but to have it come from another child and not from mom, which might make it stick with young kids a little better. The illustrations are beautiful and fit with the story very well. You can order your own copy of this great childrens book on amazon.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed here are 100% my own.
