As Mother’s Day approaches, I’m thinking about my mom and about being a mom. We’ll be spending the day with my parents tomorrow, enjoying a nice brunch and honoring my mother. I won’t have all my kids with me, but I’ll have the whole crew home next week. So nice to have a full nest for the summer!
So in keeping the wonderful sentiment of honoring and celebrating motherhood, here are a few books that do just that!
Tommy’s Mommy’s Fish by Nancy Dingman Watson
If you don’t know this book, try to get your hands on a copy. I’m told it’s out of print, but it’s such a wonderful story and a great one to read to your kids.
Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey
Mrs. Mallard causes quite a stir when she leads her eight ducklings through the streets of Boston, across town to meet Mr. Mallard on the pond in the Public Garden! It’s a wonderful picture book for little children and for young elementary school kids
An Invisible Thread by Laura Schroff and Alex Tresinowski
Here’s an incredible story about a woman who befriends a boy panhandling in New York, and begins a thirty-year friendship. Proof that motherhood comes in many forms.
Text Me, Love Mom: Two Girls, Two Boys, One Empty Nest by Candace Allan
You don’t stop being a mom when your kids leave the nest. Candace Allan tells us how it feels when the flights begin.
Happy Mother’s Day!
Thanks for visiting – come back soon!
