Precious book full of sweet illustrations! Perfect for the little girl who loves being a Little Mommy. My 4 and 6 year old daughters LOVED it. They even tried to recreate several of the scenes from the book.

I grew up with this book and have been looking for a bargain copy of this for years. Now that it is in reprint I can read it to my daughters. The best part about this book are the warm feelings of family it invokes from my parents reading 'or reciting from memory b/c they read it so much' this to me over and over again.

This is the most adorable children's book I have stumbled across in a very long time. Maybe in my life... Seriously I adore it! It has a lovely innocent childlike tone and is written in sing-song rhyme that is engaging. If that weren't enough the precious illustrations call up nostalgia and the beauty of a time when little girls were actually allowed and encouraged to be little girls rather than made to feel like such things were a prison and mind control and taught instead that perpetual dress-up and rowdiness equal true femininity. The child in the story narrates her day with her three dollies; "This is my house and I am the mommy. My children are Annabelle, Betsy, and Bonny (Bonnie)..." the book begins. Throughout the 22 page story we see the child and her dolls playing house, baking, laundering doll clothes, and cleaning. She interacts with other children, having a tea party with the neighbor and cooking supper for a little boy who appears briefly playing the role of daddy to the dollies. The little girl must call Dr. Dan (another little boy) when one of the dollies takes ill. "She'll be well as quick as a wink. It's just the mumbledy bumps, I think." A precious book that exhudes the sweet, busy, innocent, feminine spirit that I would love for my daughter to emulate! And what does my 3 year old daughter think? It's one of her favorite books to read at bedtime. :)

I bought this wonderful book for my three year old granddaughter. She loves the book so much that we often play "Little Mommy". My granddaughter extends the story by having me be another personality ( cashier at grocery store, hair dresser, another mommy who visits, etc.). Even though our play of "Little Mommy" varies, it is so wonderful to see her handle her three dolls just like a little mother, with care and love. "Little Mommy" is a lovely story with beautiful illustrations. It is a wholesome and refreshing book for little girls. I highly recommend this book. MimiDee
