Since Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend, we rounded up four board books that celebrate the connection between mothers and their babies. These books would all be great to read with little ones on this special day. Check them out below!
This book celebrates the irreplaceable bond between parents and children. Julie Flett‘s beautiful illustrations portray intimate moments between a mother and her baby—together, they cuddle, sing and pick flowers.
Pup’s mother teaches him everything he needs to know about being a sea otter: how to crack open a sea urchin, somersault underwater and groom himself. This book is an ode to the wisdom that mothers (of all species) pass down to the next generation.
More Than Balloons is a poetic answer to the question, “How much do you love me?” (Hint: the answer is LOTS). The book’s peppy rhymes and serene illustrations create a joyful celebration of a mother’s love.
In this rhyming book, a parent’s love for their child is celebrated throughout all 12 months of the year—because a mother’s love is “forever (then more).”
We hope your Mother’s Day is filled with lots of quality time (and quality books)!
