A Gift for Mama
A wonderful find for Mother’s Day at the local library!
A GIFT FOR MAMA takes young readers on a delightful journey through the streets of 19th Century Vienna as Oskar looks for the perfect gift for Mama. With but a single coin, he buys a yellow bloom and proudly sets home… until ‘Oskar’s generosity and inquisitiveness set off a charming chain of events which provide a story about give and take, and the clever workings of necessity when it comes to fertile and deserving imaginations.’*
Alison Jay has created a color-drenched and alluring world in A GIFT FOR MAMA by the award-winning author Linda Ravin Lodding. (Knopf Books for Young Readers/Random House, March 2014).
