Mumma Dadda No Mine More!
Published by Hardie Grant, August 2021
Mumma Dadda No Mine More is a book of few words – but each word can be used in many ways, as this toddler shows through the course of a busy day!
I have often thought that toddlers are very clever at making themselves understood using minimal language. This book plays with that idea in a fun and interactive way. It takes us through a typical weekend day of a toddler’s life, and the toddler uses just five words in different contexts and intonations and manages to make themselves very clear.
The book is intended to prompt communication between the adult reader (or even an older sibling) and young child, opening up a conversation about their day and reflecting on their own activities and their world. I hope that parents/carers/grandparents/early childhood educators will enjoy sharing the book with their young person, and I should let you know that after a couple of reads, the toddler can actually read the book back to you without too much prompting! Trust me, I’ve seen it done! And they love it!
