Reviews - What do customers think about Read for Me, Mama?

Good Book BUT Not for Children - a review of "Read for Me, Mama"  Mar 6, 2006
I find myself in an awkward position. As a mom I review books that we have read (my children just turned 4 and 6 years of age: boy and girl) so that other parents or caregivers can get an idea of whether their own children might like a book. As such I have to give this book a 3-Star rating. Understand that it has a powerful story to tell, and beautiful artwork, but it was just not appreciated by my children... and therefore possibly will not be appreciated by your own.

Simply put, 4 and 6 years-of-age is too young to understand the implications of an adult not being able to read. [Especially if the adults in their lives read incessantly, as we do.] An older child, one who could actually read themselves, would understand better.

Three Stars. Not a good read-aloud. Not for younger children if my two are any indication. Writing style is a little `dry' even for older children.
Read to Me, Mama  Mar 31, 2000
Mama is a wonderful storyteller. You know the type- she paintsvivid word pictures, setting off each line with a gesture, a body orhand motion, a snatch of song. But Mama has a secret...

How would you feel if you couldn't read?

Mama has never told her small son her humiliating secret, but now he's learning to read and she won't be able to hide it much longer. What will Mama do? Told from a child's standpoint, this touching and delightful story for children will appeal to anyone who reads- or loves his mama.
