EBOOK ↠ ç Tony Crunk A portrait of a local hero All the neighborhood kids agree that Billy Boyd's grandmother is a wonder She can build freight trains and spaceships she knows intergalactic code and she Mommy's review from 112211 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 any This may lead into some uestions 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 who live in a two parent household and can't imagine anything differentThere's a distinct southern feel to the story and the illustrations That may be only to me because there's a huge difference between 'north' and 'south' to me But Big Mama as the boys grandmother is called isn't just 'Big Mama' to him she's Big Mama to all of the kids and that impression is engraved early on in the storyCrunk goes on to illustrate with the story how easy Big Mama is and what she lets the kids do what she does for them and at the same time he shows how she commands respect and how people listen to herAround the middle of the story Big Mama takes the kids to get ice cream and there's one of those parts we often see in children's books they went this way then that way past this over that under here through there etc I can deal with that fine It's the going back that gets me often than not It's safe to assume the characters are going back Even going back the same way can be assumed So unless something is going to happen on the way back through above under in out on top etc why add it in? It's so repetitive and authors seem to really really enjoy it I could be forgiving although not much if I'm honest if this was for a toddler but it's not A child my daughters age 6 will get bored easily with parts like that if they run too long Luckily this stopped on the border Had it gone any farther Julia would have started groaning I'm sure of itThe pictures are kind of so so in how they're done but what they depict is another story entirely I loved how Big Mama an older white woman treated all the children the same black kids white kids older younger in a wheelchair it didn't matter They're treated euallyThis isn't shouted out in the story it's very subtle and I think it's perfectThis is another where I wouldn't recommend running out to purchase it but it's worth reading if you find it at the library or a garage sale or some such I'd even say it's worth reserving it at the library if for nothing else than the pros I've already mentioned

Big MamaEven plays kickball Best of all are those hot summer evenings when Big Mama treats the whole gang to ice cream Woody's ice cream stand is all the way across town and with Big Mama in 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 do when spending time with their grandparents I would have them do cut outs of old magazines that show activities they do with their grandparents The author Tony crunk is from the same background as Billy although this story does not seemed to be based on a true story This text related to my topic in the fact that it shows how Big Mama is breaking stereotypes by participating in those different activities in her neighborhood Playing kickball is something that you don’t usually see older women do but Big Mama puts all stereotypes asides and enjoys playing with her grandson I would recommend this book to other teachers because it teaches a great lesson on stereotypes
