Wonderful Mother’s Day Picture Books
Reading is a wonderful way to build a relationships, and Mother’s Day picture books are one of my favorite ways to bond with my kids on Mother’s Day! Here are a few of our favorites.
I Love My Mommy Because is a charming book featuring all kinds of mothers and children – animal and human, combined with observations of all the wonderful things mothers. do.
Mama’s Belly features a child and a mother preparing for the arrival of a new baby. The warm illustrations make this a beautiful mother-child read, particularly in a family with another baby on the way or a new baby.
My daughter Anna received the book Does a Kangaroo Have a Mother, Too? as a baby present, and it remains one of her favorites. Eric Carle’s illustrations make it a hit, and who can resist mothers and babies of all kinds?
Love You Forever is a classic book about the ties between mothers and their children that is bound to bring any mother to tears.
Mother’s Day is hard when you’ve lost your mother. Thinking of Mom deals with missing a mother who got sick and died in a sensitive and hopeful way.
When Dinosaurs Came With Everything is not technically a Mother’s Day kind of story, but it made this list because I love the mother-son relationship that is modeled in this story – something that can be kind of hard to find in picture books! It’s also a great read if you’re looking for a lighthearted laugh.
