Mama's Bank Account

Mama’s Bank Account by Kathryn Forbes, 1943

Pleasant surprises abound for the reader, beginning with the first chapter. At first glance, you might think this book is primarily about how the author’s mother managed the family’s finances. But Mama’s practical psychology and everyday wisdom are perhaps even more important than her thrift and planning.

Even though the book is about an era nearly a hundred years ago, the way Mama dealt with life offers us invaluable lessons that we can use in our twenty-first century lives.

Laugh, cry, and nod in approval and amazement as you enjoy this tale.
