Life on Daisy Dell Farm can be worrying and baby Eli always manages to find mischief, which has turned Mama into a world-class worrywart. To cope, Mama channels her nervous energy into sewing, knitting, cooking, and keeping the family and livestock warm and well fed. But after Mama saves Eli from yet another predicament, she realizes that at some point, you need to start living and stop worrying; everything will turn out fine. This creative and fun kid’s book teaches youngsters that the best lesson is to share what you have and enjoy the folks you’re with.—Breana Roy
