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?

Monday, May 4th @ 7 pm

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.

Come Join Us For Mother's Day Story Time!

This Thursday, May 9th at 10:45 am Stratford Library will have a very special story time featuring books about Mom, singing, dancing, and a magnetic puzzle-piece picture frame craft. Kiddos, come on out an paint a gift for your mom. We will take your picture while you create your masterpieces so your present will be complete to take with you. Hope to see you there!

Mother, Dearest Mother!

M is for Mother, most Marvelous mother to me
O is for the One and Only good thing that ever happened to me
T is for the Tender love she’s given me since birth
H is for the Heaven that all mothers represent on earth
E is for an Exceptional lady, who else can that be
R is for the Reassuring comfort only mama can bring to me

I was taught this song in my elementary school and I have never forgotten it ever since even though I no longer have a clue that who wrote or sang this song but the words will never cease to warm my heart.

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.
