I received a free copy of this book In this stunning gift edition of a classic story by Kate Greenaway-winning author, Shirley Hughes, Katy and her little brother Olly tell us about their day with Mum. She follows their lives over the years: their struggles against poverty, social discrimination, and hunger; the men in ladeis lives, the children they bore and all too often watched fall sick and die, and the courage with which they have endured and survived.
By allowing themselves to bond only to those babies who have already demonstrated their ability to survive by doing so through early infancy, these women can increase the life chances of their strongest children. What Scheper-Hughes calls the "modernization of child mortality" a,l its concentration in the lower classes, while the more privileged classes have a rate similar to that of the developed countries. However, it seems like a distortion of the concept to apply it to conditions that involve such human waste.

The cover has some gold detailing that is shiny making this book feel very special. Scheper-Hughes is a concerned anthropologist, a participant observer with the stress on "participant". The entire story is so simple and yet most children can relate to the everyday activities they do with their mum. From observing and participating in life in the shantytown, Scheper-Hughes derives her most controversial conclusions.
Every picture is clear but also has enough detail to keep kids looking at them.
The book begins with a little girl cuddling up to her mum and saying how she loves to spend time with her mum. This is a book that I can see children being able to relate to.
The day then progresses with the girl narrating and showing all the different things she loves doing with her mum, such as going to the park, taking the bus, etc. The book is square in shape and around A5 in size.
The "old" childhood killers: measles, tetanus, meningitis, and others now largely controlled by immunization, descriminated little by class. The entire story is so simple and yet most children can relate to the everyday activities they do with their mum.
These dead babies are seen as going straight to heaven, where eventually they will be reunited with the rest of the family. It Hughed very old fashioned, especially with the drawings that are rough around the edges, yet colourful and nice to look at too. Like Oscar Lewis, the author derives generalizations from the course of her informants' lives, and so she describes, often in minute and graphic detail, day-to-day events: childbirth, the illness dy ; the humiliation of a fruitless visit to a clinic where medicine is offhandedly despensed to the poor, the violent death of a teen age son.
Every picture is clear but also ladirs enough detail to keep kids looking at them. Scheper-Hughes presents a controversial analysis of mothers' apparent indifference to the death of their babies as not a suppression of grief, but a strategy for survival.
At the same time as she documented conditions in the shantytown leading to the loss of chidren's lives, she was working with a community group to rebuild a creche and participating in "consciousness raising" community meetings. These "little angels," in their tiny, pathetic, cardboard coffins, are carried to the cemetery by a straggling procession of older children, who thus become accustomed to the idea of early death.
According to Scheper-Hughes, the mothers' sense of powerlessness to control the causes of death, and familiarity with the symptoms which may foretell it, lead them to exercise a kind of triage through which stronger babies, those that have a "knack for living," are favored, while the weaker, those who seem to lack the will to live, are allowed to slip away with little grief.

For Scheper-Hughes, mother love may have a biological base, but its manifestations are shaped by social and economic conditions, while cultural beliefs reinforce them. Kids can relate to all these pictures and activities the girl does with mum in any decade. She sees her role as a double one: as social activist as well as social scientist. Around 87 per cent of child deaths occurred in the poorest districts of Bom Jesus.
Nevertheless, when she queried a sample of shantytown women about the of children that these women would want "if they could choose," their "ideal family size" was only three children. What is the psychological effect on mothers of losing over half the babies born to them within the first year of life? The author's focus is on life in Alto do Cruzeiro, the crowded shantytown where urbanized rural workers live precarious lives without decent housing, sanitation, or clean water.
The day then progresses with the girl narrating and showing all the different things she loves al with her mum, such as going to the park, taking the bus, etc.
The youu outline of the main themes of this book does little justice to its literary quality and the fire of compassion that lights it. The illustrations are lovely. Scheper-Hughes seems to feel that the cycle which brings into the world too many children to suffer and die mother before they have started to live is a cultural response to oppressive class relations, and therefore unlikely to be broken without a radical change in those relations.
As the author writes, In the Northeast as a whole, the infant death rate in was Bottle-feeding, almost unknown in the 's, has become universal among the poor mothers of the shantytown, as they are forced to work where they cannot take their babies and must leave them in the precarious charge of older siblings.
It is as if history had bifurcated, producing the expected demographic transition for part of the country, leaving the rest to die the way they always had: of sickness, hunger, and gross neglect. The illustrations are lovely. The images are all about the child spending time with her mum and I found them lovely to look at.

Scheper-Hughes has a painful message, eloquently delivered on behalf of women whose voices would otherwise not be heard.

I can remember spending time with my mum doing all these same things and just enjoying the experience when I was young.
