“Can’t you just stay home with me today, Dad? It’ll be fun.”
Oh, the guilt.
Many children find it difficult to understand why one or both of their parents have to leave each day to go to work. While the concept of why often isn’t grasped right away, children are certainly aware that their parents need to work. Mommy and Daddy Work to Make Some Dough helps parents explain that reason why.
Even when they’re happy at school, daycare, or with a babysitter, most kids would still like the comfort and pleasure of having their parents close by; Rebeca is no exception. When she asks her mother why she must leave every day, she finds the answer to be quite confusing.
Dough? Are her parents bakers? How delightfully delicious! No, wait, that’s not right…
Jennifer Lynn Pereyra’s book will entertain children with its funny wordplay and rhyming lines, and will enlighten parents just the same. Mommy and Daddy Work to Make Some Dough is an excellent choice for any household in which one or both parents work.
