This year I really wanted to write my book based posts as childrens books was my career before this and I love them! There are just so many great stories out there to share with your kids. With Mothers Day on Sunday I thought I would share my top 5 picture books to read with your kids on Mothers Day. They would also be great as a little extra Mothers Day gift. So let’s get started.
This wasn’t a book I was familiar with until recently, it was a library find. Little Man and I loved reading this. It is all about a little boy who is a bit fed up with his mum telling him to tidy his room so rings up an agency to help him find a new mummy. He tries out lots of different ones before he realises his is the best. It’s very funny with a nice warm and fuzzy ending!
This is a lovely story for younger children. It lists all the reasons mums are just great. It’s a rhyming book which is always a hit I find with both the kids and for me reading it. It’s a great one to have a chat about afterwards too and relatable for kids too. Little Man likes to point out the things I do too. The dad version of this book is great too.
The little boy in this story comes to the conclusion that his mum has x-ray vision because she always seems to know what he is doing. We loved this book, it made us laugh from start to finish. I always tell the kids I have eyes in the back of my head and I always know what they are up to. This book comes highly recommended from us.
I have read this book to Little Man since he was tiny. You just can’t beat a good Julia Donaldson book and this one is no exception to the rule. It is about a monkey who has lost his mum so a butterfly tries to help him find her. He describes his mum to her but every time she finds the wrong animal because to her his mummy shouldn’t look like him because her babies are caterpillars. Such a lovely book with an added lesson too!
This book highlights all the funny things that we as parents say like ants in your pants or watching too much TV will give you square eyes. It’s quite funny to think that kids take the things we say a lot more literally than we mean it and they must wonder what we are on about. It has a really lovely ending though.
I hope these have given you some inspiration for some Mothers Day reads, what will you be reading this Mothers Day?
