A debut book that gives families time and reason to connect
How many questions can children ask – every day – every hour – no matter where you are or umm…what you are doing…
“MOMMY, WHY?” From the moment children utter their first words, they are bursting with questions about the world around them and why everything is the way it is. ` We answer our children’s thoughts,
concerns, and fears the best we can, calmly on the outside while often screaming inside our head: How do I answer that question? – Am I doing this right? – Do I even know anything? – Arg, my armpits are beginning to sweat- what was the question again? ` Readers are invited to join author Erin Royce as she lets us eaves – drop on a young girl’s anxious, yet touching questions about herself to the person she trusts the most in the world – her mother.
Parents will value and find inspiration in the loving mother’s simple yet wise answers to the daughter’s difficult questions. ` When read together, Mommy, Why? will give families the opportunity to discuss the issues raised in the book and encourage children to ask their own questions. It gives families a moment in time to “connect” with the children in our lives – to laugh – give squeeze hugs – answer questions and “just be” together – to let them know they matter to us – they matter in this world.
