Mother's Day Books

There is absolutely no shortage in books about Moms out there. No shortage. I guess that is a testament to how important moms are, right? Here is a list of some books we have read and loved and books we own and love. I have let you know which ones I think are definitely worth owning.

Mother May I by Grace Maccarone
Mother, May I?

This is a fun rhyming book where the child asks for things, but in the end all the child wants is a hug from mom.

The Most Thankful Thing by Lisa Mccourt
The Most Thankful Thing

A story about a mom telling her daughter that she is her most thankful thing.

Clifford's Happy Mother's Day by Norman Birdwell
Clifford's Happy Mother's Day
Our kids always love Clifford books. This one is about Clifford and his mom.

My Mommy Hung the Moon by Jamie Lee Curtis
My Mommy Hung the Moon: A Love Story
This story is all about the love between a mother and daughter. The mother loves the daughter with unconditional love, and the daughter believes the mother is the best at everything there is to be best at. This is so the way Kaitlyn views me right now.

Llama Llama Mad at Mama by Anna Dewdney
Llama Llama Mad at Mama
Don't let the title fool you. Llama gets mad at Mama, but Mama patiently helps him turn toward being cheerful and helpful. A great mom book. This is one we own and our kids love the Llam Llama books.

Where is Baby's Mommy?
Karen Katz is definitely one of my favorite authors for babies and toddlers. This is a fun lift-the-flap board book. This is another one we own and love.

Counting Kisses by Karen Katz
Counting Kisses 
Another one we own and love. This one isn't so much just a mom book--it works for Dads and grandparents, too. But this is definitely one I think is a must-own.

Mommy Hugs by Karen Katz
Mommy Hugs
See? I told you we love Karen Katz. I think that title and picture say it all.

No Matter What by Debi Gliori
No Matter What
In this book, the Mommy explains that she will always love her child, no matter what. This is another one we own and love.

Love You Forever by Robert Munsch
Love You Forever
I think this is another must-own. This story takes you from the child being a baby on up to being a grown man and taking care of his ailing mother. This is very sweet and leaves my Father-In-Law in tears every time.

Mom, Wake Up and Play by Brigitte Weniger
MIKO: Mom, Wake Up and Play!
This is a sweet story about a child trying to busy himself while mom sleeps in--only he doesn't want to do mom's favorite activities because he doesn't want her to miss out on the fun.

Bear of My Heart by Joanne Ryder
Bear of My Heart
This one could work for Mother's Day or Father's day because the author cleverly never discloses if this is mom or dad bear. It is all about the fun of parent and child together.

Keepsake Storybook Collection (I Love My Mommy)
This book actually has the first three books I listed on this list--so if you want all three in one pack, this is the one for you.

I Will Kiss You by Stoo Hample
I Will Kiss You: Lots & Lots & Lots
This is a fun read that taps into the silliness of toddlerhood. 

I Love My Mom by Anna Walker
I Love My Mom
This is cute and simple--great for the younger crowd (toddlers and younger).
