Books for Mother's Day
A few years back I put together a children's Mother's Day program. Part of the preparation was preparing a bibliography of books that would be good to put out to accompany the program. I still have the list and have transferred it to my category archive listing on Mother's Day books. The following are a few books I have received as gifts or recently checked out and really enjoyed, but are not on the list. So, if you are looking for a special gift for your Mom or just something fun to share with your young one(s) take a look at the list. It is in alpha order by author's last name. There are a few Early Readers, Spanish Language, and I think maybe one or two books regarding adoption included in the list. Also, if you do not find anything of interest here there is always the option of searching under the topic of Children's Mother's Day books at one of the online bookstores or your local library.
