Editorial Reviews

Inspired Parenting Magazine
Mama is a romp through a wildly colorful landscape in the company of two engaging children.
OC Family Magazine
It's one thing to write a book that stimulates a child's imagination, another to write one that inspires the child to actually go out and create something of his own. That's exactly what Mama does.
Children's Literature
A big sister relates interpretations of her toddler brother's one-word vocabulary during the routines of a typical day. "MAMA" is the word he exclaims, from first waking in his crib in the morning when "Mama" means "Let me out!" to getting dressed, to breakfast time when "Mama" means "I'm hungry," to riding along with Big Sister to school, and on to after-school shopping and then playtime. He uses "Mama" to express emotions from happy to sad, or to really mean "Dad." Finally, at day's end and time for bed, "Mama" means "very simply . . 'MAMA'"—and this is the first time Mama actually appears in the book. Rhyming text of one to three lines per page is just slightly off-meter. Collage illustrations are uneven geometrical or rounded shapes and solid colors, creating a flat perspective. While child-like, the the many bits of color on each page creates a frequent lack of focal point and sometimes a skewed viewpoint. Some images are difficult to discern which detracts from the meaning. 2004, Stunt Publishing, Ages 4 to 7.

    Mama

    MAMA is a touching story that many of us, as parents and children, can relate to. It's a story being told by the older sister of a child who uses one word that encompasses all of his happiness, fears and needs. The word is simply 'Mama.¿ It is an excellent book to read to children and those children may go on to read it to you as they get older. The artwork makes it an excellent coffee- table book or conversation piece. The story, in its simplicity and truth, can be one that a new parent will appreciate as well. Either way, MAMA is a book that should be added to your library

    This story is beautifully written. It is easy to read and uses language that even the youngest of children understand. Amazing illustrations, check out the subtle details in the collages. This is a heartwarming story that will be truly enjoyed by everyone, both young and old.
