    One thought on “Big Mama”

    1. Mommy's review from 11/22/11 - I really like reading stories with Julia that are about different kinds of families and children. In this story a little boy lives with his grandparents "because he doesn't have a mother or father anymore." This may lead into some questions from some children. My daughter didn't ask any because she's well aware that some children don't have or live with their parents. I'm a single mother so she knows this well. But I can see it sparking interest in some children wh [...]

    2. Big Mana is a fiction book about a young boy named Billy who lives with his grandmother. His grandmother is loved by all the kids in the neighborhood because even though she is an older female, she still does many things with her grandson that may not be typical for a girl. She plays kickball, builds trains and spaceships, and spends time with the kids. As a literacy teacher, I would use this text in the classroom by focusing on the illustrations and having students describe how they spend their [...]

    3. This book is a book that I really liked that I found during my picture book soak. The cover shows "Big Mama" with a group of kids, including a child in a wheelchair. The back of the jacket shows two children walking out of a gate with a house behind them. The cover is light pink with a blue spine and the end pages are turquoise. I thought this book was a fun read for not only myself, but for kids. In the story, Big Mama allows the kids to be as creative as they want and is always doing things wi [...]

    4. The book Big Mama is about a boy who lives with his grandmother. His grandmother is not your typical grandmother in the sense that she plays with the kids in the neighborhood even though she is so much older than they are. The main characters in this book are the young boy named Billy and his grandmother who they call Big Mama. The genre of style of writing is good for elementary students. As a literacy teacher I would use this text in the classroom to get the students thinking about things they [...]

    5. I very much enjoyed this book about a little boy's beloved grandmother who cares for him since "he doesn't have a mother or father anymore." Perfect for anyone who needs a book about different sorts of families, it also seamlessly includes a multi-ethnic cast and a child in a wheelchair. I loved the fact that all of this was just seen as normal, as it should be. What was seen as special was the way "Big Mama" actively engages with the children and seems to really understand their need to explore [...]

    6. Very cute book about a grandmother that is loved by all. Billy lives with her so this is a good book to read if you have a child that lives with grandparents. Good illustrations and a great adventure.

    7. This is a cute book about a boy that lives with his grandmother. While, his mother maybe his grandmother that doesn't stop all of the neighborhood children from following Big mama around.
