My Momma Likes to Say

My momma Likes to SayFrom the author of Buzzy the Bumblebee comes a child’s hilarious visual interpretation of such parental idioms and witticisms as “Hold your horses” and “Money doesn’t grow on trees”.

“Cat got your tongue?”
My momma likes to say.
I’m not sure what she means
but I like it anyway.

My cat has never tried
to take my tongue away.
But if he did, he’d find that it
can stretch a long, long way.

Review:

“Offers an amusing tale about a child’s literal interpretation of the statements his mother commonly makes, such as ‘money doesn’t grow on trees’ and ‘hold your horses.’ Illustrations.”
