Why My Mama is a Grouch and More -

Click to BuyThat Baby Woke Me Up, Again! gives a realistic account of an older sister who reveals her frustration about her brother, the “noisy baby,” down the hall. He awakes her from dreams and he awakes all the members of the house with his cries. Author, Sherry Ellis, tells a wonderful story using rhyme and beautifully designed illustrations (by Don Berry) showing exactly how the characters feel, and a tone that helps you to understand the narrator, the parents, and the “noisy baby.”
This book is one that every parent, especially those who have younger children, should have. It is an excellent teaching tool for mothers-to-be, new mothers, and children who have a new addition/baby in their homes. If you take the book another step, it could help us understand an ailing child or having a sick person in our homes. 
Lesson: The situation will not last forever—that is one of the main messages.

That Mama is a Grouch
I bought That Mama is a Grouch for my sister because she has young children, and they are expressive, saying exactly what they have on their minds. My sister, a teacher, likes to help her children to understand what they have read, and this book is one that helps parents and children to communicate better. Why is Mama a grouch in the child’s eyes?

This story teaches how children behave, how they feel, and how they perceive their parents, but most importantly, the story teaches children to be more responsible. Caretakers, nannies and early childhood educators should have this book in their book collection.

  7. I've got to get That Mama is a Grouch. I actually had my grandniece, Jossie, tell me the other day, mama is a grouch today. You need to make her laugh and make my day better. She's such a little drama queen and very expressive both physically with gestures and facial expressions. I think this would be a great one for her and her little sister, Nikki-Raine.
