Just Me and My Mom

by Marilyn Roca Enriquez in


To be a mother is to be a teacher.  Now, that is not to say that just because someone is a mother she is automatically qualified to teach in a classroom, but often mothers are among the first people to teach children their earliest lessons like their first words and right and wrong.  So in honor of mothers everywhere, we at OutlooK-12 are dedicated this month’s School Library to children’s books about mothers.  We also want to wish you, our readers, a Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mothers in your lives.

The day didn’t get off to the best start for little critter and his mother.  They were going to take a train into the city, and little critter even gave the nice animal at the train station the money for their tickets.  His mother looked at him so proudly.  Unfortunately, the train’s steps were too high for little critter’s little legs, and as his mother helped him, he dropped their tickets.  Now his mother looked at him so angrily as she brought two more tickets from the conductor. Still, there’s plenty to do in the city, and little critter and his mother have the whole day together.
