Do you want a good excuse to curl up with your little ones this Mother’s Day? Grab a couple of these books, and settle in your favorite spot to enjoy story time with the ones that made you a mommy.
Mother’s Day book for Elementary and Preschoolers
The Night Before Mother’s Day – Natasha Wing
We can’t get enough of the Night Before series! Natasha Wing does a perfect job of describing the holiday and all the fun to be had in a familiar rhyme. She is sure to make all my lists!
Berenstain Bears: We Love our Mom – Jan Berenstain
Another series that’s guaranteed to make my list is the Bear family! I loved them when I was growing up, and started I sharing them early with my girls. Mama and Papa Bear always have a valuable lesson to be taught and do so in a loving way. I love being able to share my childhood favorites with my kids.
Just Me and My Mom – Mercer Mayer
Our collection of Little Critter books is growing quickly. My five year-old loves finding the little hidden friends on each page, and the lessons are perfect for a preschooler to relate to and understand. You can also grab a copy of Just Grandma and Me for your little ones to share with Grandma on Mother’s Day.
5 Minute Peace – Jill Murphy
This was a new find and really cute. Every mom will be able to relate to Mrs. Large when all she wants is five minutes of peace, but those kiddos follow her every where. It’s sure to bring a laugh from kids and moms. Buy this in a board book format and add it to your next baby shower gift so those new moms know they aren’t alone in the chaos of motherhood.
I’ve Loved You Since Forever – Hoda Kotb
Another book that would be great as a baby shower gift! I love how Hoda Kotb’s heart shows through in everything she does, and this book is no exception. Such a beautiful story and bound to become a favorite for all mamas and their babies!
Love You Forever – Robert Muncsh
I’m sure this one is not new to most of us, but it’s such a classic when you’re talking about the love between a mom and her baby. It is the perfect baby shower gift, Mother’s Day gift, or bedtime story. Honestly, though, I can’t read it anymore without hearing Joey reading it for Emma’s first birthday on Friends!
However you spend Mother’s Day, I hope you have a great one surrounded by those that you love. Being a Mom is by far the hardest job I have ever had, but I know I won’t ever have a cooler job either!
Happy Mother’s Day!
