Mommy, Where are you? (Picture Book)
Released March 2009
Reviewed by Bob Walch
Ozzy wakes early one morning only to find his mother is not in the house. "Mommy, Mommy! Where are you?" the little gray mouse calls out. He hurries outside and looks over the fence and then behind a rock. But, mommy is not there!
Then he sees something moving in the tall grass but it is only a bunny. As the search continues, Ozzy becomes more frantic. Where is his mother? He looks up in a tree, in a nearby pond and even in the tulip bed. The results are sadly the same - no mommy!
Finally, the scared, little mouse goes home and miraculously, there's his mother waiting for him. She had just gone out to get something good for them to eat for breakfast.
This clever story addresses the fears some preschoolers have that a parent will suddenly disappear. After you read this picture book to your child make sure to assure him or her that there's no need to panic if you are not always where you are expected to be. It is important to make the child realize that sometimes mommy or daddy has to go out to do something but there's no need to worry.
