Waiting for Mama by Beatrice Schenk De Regniers

Waiting for Mama by Beatrice Schenk de Regniers Waiting for Mama was one of my favorite picture books as a child. It is out of print, but you can still find copies on Amazon, and I have found it at libraries before. It is now one of Brontë’s favorite books. We probably read it once a week.

It is about a little girl, Amy, who has to sit on a bench and wait for her Mama to come out of the grocery store. She sees a few friends who encourage her to wait for her mother, but her mom takes a long time.

what my kids read

Amy begins to daydream, imagining that she will have to wait on that bench for a hundred years. She imagines that she will grow up, get married, have children, grandchildren, dogs, and puppies, and they will all wait for a hundred years for her mama to come out of the grocery store.

what my kids read

My kids just might relate to Amy in feeling like they have to wait a hundred years for me to do things, but you will have to read the book to see if Amy does.
