Mama Loved to Worry by Maryann Weidt, Rachael Balsaitis (Illustrated by)

Mama is so good at worrying, she takes the blue ribbon at the local fair.  That tells you something!

Minnesota Historical Society Press and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published April lst.

This is a tall tale with Mama at the center of the story.  She has a young son that keeps taking off and getting in trouble.  She worries about, saves him, and does all sorts of needlework or cooking to calm down.  She knits up scarves and hats for the all barnyard animals.  Makes pounds of food and shares it with everyone.  She even manages to keep her son out of trouble, most of the time.

It's a cute tale with lots of nonsense and some very good advice about worrying.  Sometimes you just have to stop...

My favorite part is when Mama and her son roll into the river and start playing with each other.  What could be better?
