Books for Mothers Day!
A few weeks ago I told you I had gone to a small independent bookstore near me that had just hosted Kathie Lee Gifford and her new book Party Animals. While I was there I took a look at the books they had on their Mothers Day display. I have already talked about the Tomie dePaola bk My Mother is So Smart but there were a few others that I liked on the table as well. I thought I would suggest them as books to help celebrate Mother's Day.
You and Me by Martine Kindermans is a beautifully sweet book of a mother Goose and her gosling. I was touched by the words as they reminded me of my beautiful Mother. The illustrations are warm and soothing.
Just Like Mama by Lesléa Newman & illustrated by Julia Gorton is a new book from Abrams Books for Young Readers. This is also a great book, the illustrations have a different and modern feel to them but the story is timeless. This book reminded me of my sister Ann and her daughter Celia~it is a great book for moms & daughters.
Are You My Mother (cloth book) by P.D. Eastman ~ this is a new version of one of my favorite Dr Seuss books. I don't normally like when books are shortened for toddlers but this one is done extremely well. Great way to introduce to toddlers the world of Dr Seuss.
