We read quite a lot together and to each other, we regard it as a special time together. We often give each other nice books as gifts for occasions and Mother’s Day is no exception. I’ve been taking a look at some lovely books which might make nice gifts for Mother’s Day.
Six Children’s Books for Mother’s Day
With My Mummy by James Brown and Cally Johnson-Isaacs is a heartwarming celebration of the relationship between mother and child. Told in gentle rhyme by James Brown and brought to life with illustrations by Cally Johnson-Isaacs. With My Mummy is a charming picture book and the perfect gift to share time and time again.
Mother’s Day by Shirley Hughes would make a gorgeous gift for Mother’s Day. Katy and her little brother Olly tell us about their day with Mum. From the fun of waking up in the morning, getting the bus into town with Mum and reading bedtime stories together. This joyous tale gives us a snapshot into a child’s day and celebrates the special bond between a mother and child.
I Love Mum with The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. This is a celebration of love and all the ways to tell your mum how much you care. This delightful little book features Eric Carle’s bright and distinctive artwork of animal mother’s and babies – from giraffes and crocodiles to bears and penguins – with The Very Hungry Caterpillar making an appearance alongside each one. The perfect gift for Mother’s Day, or any day you want to show your mum how much you care.
My Mum Is Fantastic by Nick Butterworth. I love the title of this book, it’s what I’d hope my son would say about me. The mum in this book is truly fantastic. She’s a brilliant artist, she can balance on a tightrope, she can swim like a fish, do amazing stunts on a bike and she can tame wild animals. There’s very little this astounding mum can’t do. And if that leaves you feeling a bit inadequate, I’m sure you’re fantastic in our own special way.
Superhero Mom by Timothy Knapman and Joe Berger. All mums are amazing, and the mum in this story is no exception. She doesn’t wear a cape or fly around, but she runs for the bus so fast it feels like flying; she uses her super-strength to carry her daughter’s boots, coat, bag, and scooter; and can make bumps and bruises better with just a kiss. Maybe mums really do have superpowers after all!
