Tight Times

by Barbara Shook Hazen

This children's book introduces a family who is experiencing "tight times" in a way that children can begin to understand. A little boy finds he can't have exactly what he wants for breakfast. He has to stay with a babysitter because his mother has to work. It isn't a good time for him to get a dog. Worst of all, moms and dads cry! Then, a surprise and a mess in the kitchen makes the family feel better. This book is a good starting point for discussing why parents can't always buy everything children want, and how making the best of the situation helps.
