So here are 11 Children's Book Suggestions on the theme of Mother's Day:
|"Are You My Mother?" by P.D. Eastman is my one of my favorite books from my own childhood. My kids love it a lot too.
|"If I Could: A Mother's Promise" by Susan Milford looks quite endearing - it lists all the things the mom raccoon would do for her child if she could. The pictures in this book are super cute.
|"Mother, Mother, I Want Another" by Maria Poluskin Robbins seems like a silly and fun book about a baby mouse wanting his mom to give him another kiss, but the mom thinks her baby is asking for a different mother entirely and goes off to find one.
|"Fancy Nancy's Marvelous Mother's Day Brunch" by Jane O'Connor is definitely on our list because I find that one can never go wrong with Fancy Nancy.
|"Hero Mom" by Melinda Hardin looks interesting because it's all about moms that serve in the military. And all military moms (and dads, and people in general) are heroes.
|"I Love Ewe" by Aaron Zenz is good for a fast read for the little kids. The cute animal pictures and fun word play are sure for a quick smile.
|"Just Me and My Mom" by Mercer Mayer looks awesome to read, because I love that little critter lots and lots. I had a little critter book when I was young and I remember relating to him a lot because he kept making messes no matter how hard he tried not to. So, naturally, he'll always be a favorite.
|"Me and My Mom!" by Alison Ritchie caught my attention because of the picture on the front of the book - it's just so cute!
|"My Mom is the Best Circus" by Luciana Navaro Powell is another quick read, and looks really promising. Because sometimes, as a mom, I feel like I'm living in a circus too.
|"Pirate Mom" by Deborah Underwood looks perfect for my second grader. I think he'll find it hilarious to read about a mom being hypnotized into thinking she's a pirate.
|"Ramona and her Mother" by Beverly Cleary is for sure on our reading list. Because Ramona's antics are timeless and hilarious. Plus I haven't read this for one for a really long time.
Now we just need to get started on our list - which I'm now excited to begin. And hopefully that will inspire you into a little mom-themed reading of your own!
