    Reminiscent of childhood TV show 'I Remember Mamma!'

    A book with vivid and heartwarming memories. You feel the love and will actually hear the characters speaking. We watched the TV show 'I remember Mamma' on Friday evenings when I was a child. This book brings back many fond memories. You will find yourself rereading chapters and still becoming teary eyed.

    A Total Joy

    This book was a total joy. It was written by Kathryn Forbes about her mother and her entire family, and was written with more love than any other book I've ever read. I most highly recommend this wonderful little book and hope it reaches the hands of anyone who needs a life anywhere. It's great!

    Mama and her Bank Account(s)

    This book show what a Norwegian family goes through during their life in San Francisco, CA. It has a mixture of Happieness, Saddness, and Love. The title plays a very important part in the book. I enjoyed the book as did many other's (who cared/ actually read it) in my class.
