My Momma like to Say is brilliant! All the little idioms that make sense to adults are worked into rhymes with a child's confusion and hopes, yet wonderfully explained. I remember having to explain something to my youngest when he was 4 ... oh my.

The illustrations are wonderful and hilarious - I laughed right out loud with "Washington's Dollar Tree Farm *Pick Your Own*".
