Si Mama, Si Papa Earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval

Deeply rooted in faith and family, young Helen loves her Mama and Papa and the Holy Family.  But she is a shy little girl and is afraid to embark on the unknown as her first day of school approaches.  In a rare act of defiance, she refuses to go to school.  But she is gently reminded by her mother that good things come from obeying and that even Mary and Jesus did things that at times were unpleasant, although they would have preferred not to. 

Si Mama, Si Papa is a lovely book with a positive message and an uplifting outcome.  Children will be able to relate to Helen's fears and insecurities as she tries to overcome her shyness.  The overall message that good things come to those who obey is a beautiful lesson for young children. 

Si Mama, Si Papa, by Nancy Scalabroni, is a bilingual story - told first in English, and then in Spanish.  This book is recommended for home and libraries and has earned the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.
