Because Your Mommy Loves You is a sweet picture book about a mother and son’s camping trip. She doesn’t coddle him, but as we moms know, sometimes that’s the best (though hardest way) to show our love. Throughout the story, the narrator says “She could have. . . . but she didn’t,” meaning she could have taken the easy way out, but instead she pushes him towards independence and allows him to enjoy everything that a fun camping trip has to offer.
Because we love our kids, we want to do special things with them, but we also take the time to train them.
Written by Andrew Clements (who you or your grade schoolers might know as the clever author of such novels as Frindle), and illustrated by R. W. Alley who created the image of Paddington Bear, Because Your Mommy Loves You is a read-aloud that would be great to share with a group, or to enjoy as a special mother-child book. If you are actually planning a camping trip (or enjoy camping as a family), it will be appreciated even more.
