Humpty Dumpty Just Needed a Nap

What Children's Stories Teach Us About Life, Love, and Mothering

Authored by Amy Ruth Henry

Do you have a child who you just don't understand? Ferdinand's mama did, too.

Do you ever feel like you're too hard or too soft with your kids? Goldilocks has your answer.

Have a picky eater and at your wits' end with the wasted broccoli in your trash can? Green Eggs and Ham has news for you.

Ever feel like the life you planned isn't going as, uh, you planned? Cinderella can help.


From helping you discern between childishness and naughtiness (Curious George) to helping traverse the road to the empty nest (The Three Pigs), Humpty Dumpty Just Needed a Nap offers the kind of wisdom and encouragement I wish I'd had when I was a newbie mama of my six children. Like how to survive the early years (naps), how to find your own mothering groove (The Pied Piper of Hamelin), and how to keep going when the going gets rough (The Little Engine That Could), my book is full of whimsical vignettes that explore some of the best children's books out there (think The Velveteen Rabbit, The Runaway Bunny, and The Giving Tree) and discovers what they have to say to mamas like you, and like me.
