That's what mamas do

Davis, Donald, 1944-

Little Rock, AR : August House, p2001.

1 sound disc : digital ; 4 3/4 in.

Stories have a primal place in families, helping us remember our ancestors and helping us remember the character traits, foibles, strengths, and weaknesses of our clans. You've heard uncles and aunts say, "You come from good stock." Stories repeated around holiday dinner tables tell us why.

In That's What Mamas Do, a cycle of four stories, Davis celebrates all that is maternal and confirms once and for all that mother knows best.

The five stories in Father Was a Wise Old Man recall the wisdom of fathers with humor and rich detail: a visit to the Smithsonian inspires Father's memory; Father "cures" a boy's impulse to try cigarettes; Santa Claus learns an important lesson; someone plays a trick on a visiting preacher.
