Overview

Momma, will you feed the hen?
Yes or no or maybe?
Scatter corn around the pen.
You and me and baby.

A young boy is eager to show his baby sister all the wonderful things in his world-and Momma is there to answer each question the day brings. Lilting rhymes in an engaging question-and-answer format join with heart-warming illustrations to capture a growing child's curiosity about the world around him and a mother's tireless love.

As they make their way around the farm, a young boy asks his mother a series of questions about the animals found there, to which she answers "yes," "no," or "maybe" and explains why.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Soft silhouettes accompany gentle questions in rhyme from a young lad as he traverses his farm with his mother and baby sister on a warm morning. Mother wisely answers her sons questions with yes, no, or maybe and provides a reason for each response. The son asks: "Mother, will you ride the foal?" "Momma, will you catch a wren?" Momma responds by saying the foal is still a baby and she will find a stronger horse; she will not catch a wren, as wild things should fly free. She does agree to wash the pig, but not in his sister's bath. Realistic illustrations are done in soft as well as bright pastels to create a comforting, inviting ambience. It is fun to guess the animal just by looking at its outline—without having to read the question—and imagining your own response to each query. One thing lacking in this bucolic work is any mention of Daddy. It appears Momma spends her day with two children in tow without a care in the world, but is not that every child's perception of their mother? Sure to be a favorite book to cuddle and snuggle up with. 2004, Viking/Penguin Young Readers Group, Ages 4 to 8.

PreS-"Momma, will you milk the cow?/Yes or no or maybe?/We would like some sweet milk now./Milk for me and baby." As a young boy asks questions, he, his baby sister, and their mother spend a day exploring their farm. They feed the hen, ride a dappled horse, take a bath, and share kisses with a puppy. The mother's answers-either yes, no, or maybe-are presented in reassuring refrains that echo her son's queries. Chaconas's language evokes warmth and comfort, resulting in a story that begs to be read to children while they are snuggled in a loved one's lap. Featuring warm colors and realistic-looking characters, the large, expressive illustrations enhance the cozy mood of the text. Full-page paintings of the family are paired with white silhouettes of the featured farm animals set against textured backgrounds. As the day ends, the baby is sleeping in a crib and the mother is gently tucking the boy into bed. The room is lit from behind by the golden glow of a lamp on a nightstand. This affectionate, satisfying book will be asked for again and again.-Rebecca Sheridan, Easttown Library & Information Center, Berwyn, PA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author

Dori Chaconas was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1938. The second child in a family of seven, Dori fell into the role of storyteller, nursery rhyme singer, and general entertainer for her siblings. She claims she learned about story pacing early. If the story action lagged, her fidgety audience would either scatter or start a poking war.

She has been married to Nick, her high school sweetheart, for 44 years. Everyone says the romance will last. They raised four daughters, and are now enjoying three grandsons-especially Grandpa, having been outnumbered by women all those years.

When their daughters were young, Dori wrote for them. She published three picture books and more than fifty stories in children's magazines. In the 70's, her interest turned to yarn embroidery design and she sold designs to major needlework companies and national magazines.

In 1997, Dori started writing stories again, partly to keep her grandsons from fidgeting or starting poking wars. Her stories reflect the warmth of family life. Dori gives credit to her parents for giving her a strong sense of family, and to her children and grandchildren for keeping it alive.
