In That Mama is a Grouch, an intelligent and very wise narrator reminds us in charming rhyme that mothers are human, most often loving, and that certain situations will guarantee driving them to their breaking point.

In Sherrry Ellis' delightful book, that Mama is a Grouch, children from age 3-8 will quickly learn that clutter-caused tension in a home can be avoided.  In this story, Mama is having a bit of a tantrum over the mess, and the narrator, a precocious child indeed, soon understands all too well.  Toys are strewn about as obstacles that can cause falls and short tempers.  Mama is tired-tired-tired of cleaning up this constant clutter.  In a voice as wise as it is adorable, the narrator reminds children that parents are human, with feelings and moods.  At the same time, parents are reminded that chldren are, well, children!  Ms. Ellis has produced a book that takes the place of yelling.  Whether read by adults to children or a child reading alone, this book guarantees to charm, amuse, and result in some much-needed changes in behavior.   

I had left my toys -all fifty two-
lying on the ground.
I had left my crayons and markers
scattered all around.

So in she came.
She growled my name
and said, "Clean up your mess!"

All right, I guess,
but I profess
that Mama is a grouch.

Professional Reviews

Five Star Review - Melissa Kline, Author
It's a wholesome, fun read that speaks to both parents and children. Ellis weaves messages of understanding, compassion, and patience into a tale children can relate to.

5 Star Review - Cynthia Gustavson, Author and Psychotherapist
This is a book that models good parenting, as well as teaching young children about rules and consequences. I would highly recommend this book for children ages 3-8.

5 Star Review - Wayne S. Walker, "Home School Book Review"
The adorable rhyming text, narrated by the girl, along with charming illustrations by Don Berry, serve to help children remember that one way to keep their parents from being so grouchy is to be neater, and to encourage parents not to be so grouchy. The next time a situation arises at your house, don't yell. Just read this book!
