Mommy . . . Why? is a sweet storybook about Sarah and her mom. In each chapter, Sarah ultimately asks, “Mommy, why?” to many questions.
- Why aren’t you a teacher any more?
- Why do you always whistle when you do the laundry?
- Why didn’t you yell back at Mrs. Littleton?
In each situation, Sarah’s mommy is able to teach her about becoming a woman of God. Mommy uses the opportunity to reinforce the importance of moms staying at home, raising her family and being respectful to her husband.
Then they (older women) can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
I like the idea of using a story to illustrate how moms can use teachable moments to teach God’s word about wives and moms. Why use a story? God uses stories to teach us because He knows we remember best through story.
You and your daughter will also enjoy the art work, as created by the author’s daughter, Bethany. This reinforces the mother-daughter relationship.
If you want a fun way to teach your daughter about becoming a woman of God, I recommend reading this story.
