Happy Mother's Day!


This Sunday is Mother's Day -- why not treat your mom to a new book? I can still remember my mom tucking me in with a chapter of The Secret Garden when I was little. What books did your mom read to you?

Top Ten Reasons a Book Makes the Perfect Mother's Day Gift

  1. Unlike flowers, a book won't die a few days later.
  2. Unlike chocolate or candy, you can spend all day indulging in a book without feeling gross later.
  3. A book is also the gift of time alone to read -- and what mother doesn't need a bit of that?
  4. A book won't give you cavities.
  5. You don't need to get dressed up to enjoy a book.
  6. A book is cheaper than going out for dinner and a movie, but lasts a lot longer.
  7. A good book leaves you feeling satisfied long after you've finished reading it.
  8. A book is a present you can share when you're finished with it.
  9. Discussing a book with your mom can be a great bonding experience.
  10. A book will make up for all that trouble you gave your mom when you were a teenager. (Ok, maybe not... but it's worth a shot!)

If you're shopping for a new mom, you might want to pick up two books: one for mom, and one for baby to enjoy while mom reads! Might we recommend Ruth Ohi's Chicken, Pig, Cow? (We're putting out a sequel this fall, too... more on that later!)

Happy Mother's Day, everyone!
