Happy Mother's Day!

Just because the Evelyn Meador Library is closed on Sunday doesn’t mean that we don’t love and celebrate Mother’s Day. We appreciate all the moms in our community who do so much to help their kids and teach them to read and come to the library. To help you celebrate Mother’s Day, here are some great children’s books about mothers that would be perfect reads this Sunday (or any time you want to read about moms):

-My Mommy Hung the Moon by Jamie Lee Curtis & Laura Cornell: A hard-working mother's extraordinary accomplishments are listed by her devoted child.

Mother's Day Craft Box

Children ages 6 and up are invited to our Mother's Day craft on Wednesday, May 1st at 4:30 p.m. Come by the library to decorate a small box to gift to a special mother in your life, which can be used as a jewelry or other special trinket box. All supplies are provided courtesy of the Friends of the South Houston Library. A special Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mothers in our lives.

 

Book Hunters in Brief #73: Mother's Day

Mothers. If we all weren't born with one, someone would have had to invent them. Who else would have put up with your terrible twos and your even terrible-er teens? Who else would remind you to put on your helmet every single, solitary time you got on your bike, so that on the one occasion you really needed it, you had it on? Who else would have read Honey Bunny Funnybunny to you every night for a month and a half when you were three without complaint?

Llama Llama and His Mama

llama llama home with mamaMother’s Day is coming up this Sunday, May 12th. There are so many wonderful picture books that depict a mother and child relationship.  Some of my favorite books about that special bond are the Llama Llama series by Anna Dewdney.  Little Llama Llama is just like any other kid.  Sometimes he gets scared at night, or throws a tantrum at the store, or he just doesn’t feel very well.   Lucky for him, he always has his Mama around to love him no matter what.  Toddlers and preschoolers love these books and they are perfect for reading at night while cuddling with your own little llamas.

A Mother's Love Can Be No Greater

I hope that everyone has a beautiful Mother's Day.

Here are a few books that you might enjoy reading this weekend.
