When a little boy and his mom go camping, mini-disasters abound, and there are
lots of opportunities for Mom to step in and fix everything. But instead, with a loving
touch, this mommy shows her child ways to do things for himself, going far to encourage
her child’s independence. And there is still plenty of opportunity for snuggling
under the stars.
This warm and humorous testament to all the loving things a supportive mom does
each day is every bit as heartwarming as its predecessor and is sure to become a favorite
for families everywhere.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I have read this book & am ordering today along with Because Your Daddy Loves You. Both are wonderful to teach children that they can solve problems on their own to become strong independent people. The parents in the books listen to the problem that the child has & give them advice on how the child can solve it for themselves instead of the parent stepping in. It reminded me of my daughter (who is a mother) & this is just how she wants her child to be. Many different situations are given. You will not be disappointed.
It looks weird
