This delightful compendium of treasured sayings from the recollections of members of Chief John Ross Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, is a heartfelt testament to the never-ending love of mothers, grandmothers, and other caring women of their families.

Astute, sometimes poignant, often witty, these "motherisms" echo down through the years to ladies who now find themselves unwittingly continuing the tradition by using the same expressions with their own children.

The book is lavishly illustrated with charming, whimsical vignettes that capture these cherished memories and the mothers whose wit and wisdom this volume celebrates.

The book is divided into fourteen chapters covering a broad range of topics, each addressing a specific area of maternal expertise. Included are such titles as "Investment Pointers" and "Time Management" as well as a special section on "Vocabulary and Expressions." There are "Questions To Ponder," the classic "And If You Ask Why...," and a heart-warming chapter called "Making Things Better."

Children everywhere, no matter what their age, will resonate with these timeless quotations from endearing women who will forever remain in our memory. It is an adorable and enchanting read, and a must-have volume for sharing with those you love.
