9780688149864: When Mama Gets Home

Mama is almost home from work! But first the young narrator and her sister and brother have a lot to do. They will set the table and peel the vegetables and get things ready. And when Mama does get home, they have so much to tell her about their day. But because she is Mama, she has time for each one of them. Marisabina Russo once again proves that her aim is true when it comes to focusing on the likes, dislikes, and needs of young children.

About the Author:

Ms. Russo has written and illustrated many picture books for children, and has illustrated several by other authors. She and her husband and children live in Westchester County, New York.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2?A realistic glimpse into family life where children are often home before their parents. As a little girl eagerly waits for her mother to come home from work so she can tell her about her day, she helps her older sister and brother get ready for dinner. When Mama does arrive, she is bombarded with questions and comments from all three children, but laughingly puts them off until dinnertime. Finally, after her older sister talks about high school and her brother talks about his basketball team, it is the youngest child's turn. The story becomes even more realistic when viewed through the festive gouache paintings done in warm yellows, soft red, and bold green. The scene depicting the child talking to her mother is priceless?both of her siblings are sitting at the table, staring off into space, completely bored. However, Mama has a smile on her face, and is patiently listening to her youngest daughter's long list of news, making her feel important. There are a lot of small details scattered throughout the pages, such as the many family photos that fill the apartment walls. They subtly show that although their father is not included, this is a loving and happy family.?Lisa Gangemi Krapp, Sousa Elementary School, Port Washington, NY
