My Mother’s Tattoo and Other Stories for Kids by Nanette L. Avery is a fun little book. Each of the three chapters is a different story. The chapters are My Mother’s Tattoo, Octavia’s Uphill Battle, and Madame La Mew Puts Her Paw Down. The three chapters of this book are each interesting but different. One features a day at the beach for three children and their mother. The second has a mule as its main character. Your child will laugh at what the mule Octavia wears on her hoofs. Last but not least is the story about two kittens, their mom, and their aunt.
Nanette L. Avery has a way with words. She wrote My Mother’s Tattoo and Other Stories for Kids with fun reading as a goal. Your child will enjoy the humor and adventure of each story. In addition, important lessons are taught as kids enjoy the stories. For example, one lesson is that politeness is always proper, even if you are at a beach. Another lesson teaches that curiosity can get you in trouble, especially when disobeying your parents' warnings. This is a great introduction to chapter books. Simple line drawings illustrate the stories. Younger children may need help with some of the words, but overall, I would recommend this book to young readers. I highly recommend this book for you and your child’s enjoyment.
