Picture Books (& Mother's Day Books) - A Present for Mom
Ah, did I ever tell you that my husband is the one that feeds my book habit? Probably, and on a number of occasions. Well, for Mother's Day my husband surprised me with a copy of A Present for Mom by Vivian French and illustrated by Dana Kubick 2002. What a delightful book about the youngest child's dilemma in finding the right gift for his mom. The illustrations are very sweet and captures kids (kitten) expressions so well. This would be a great story to read with kids around a parent's birthday as well. It helps the little ones understand that some of the best presents of all to give are from our heart and imagination. Also, this would be a good book for those single parent households out there as well. What's even better is it doesn't come across as a single family home. I didn't even notice at first until I read my previous notes on it from years ago when I put together my Mother's Day book list. Good for ages preschool and up.
