Mothers Day Reads

Mommie DearestIn celebration of Mothers Day next weekend, let’s salute good old Mom in a literary fashion.

In the comments below, please tell us about your favorite book with a “mom” main character. It can be fiction, nonfiction, or children’s, as long as at least one mom plays a major part. Please do it as follows:

Title: Mommie Dearest
Author: Christina Crawford
Why: Um, seriously? Because no one should *ever* use wire hangers!

If you wrote a book about a mom, please don’t list yourself. Do the honorable thing and pay a friend to do it. (Remember, IU is a PG13 and Safe-for-Work site.)

We will turn the links into book cover images for you. Please don’t try to do that yourself. And, if you don’t see the book covers, please check your AdBlock settings. Thanks!

8 thoughts on “Mothers Day Reads”

  1. My favorite is Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah
    A story about a mother and daughter struggle to connect, a moving story that ends with an unexpected twist.

  2. Just Me and My Mom
    by Mercer Mayer

    Very cute kids’ book with adorable illustrations. Used to read this and others in the series to my daughter when she was little. 🙂

  3. Title: Her Fake Romance
    Author: Donna Fasano
    Why: What single mother doesn’t need dating advice from her fourteen year-old daughter? I love the journeys Ms. Fasano takes me on.

  4. Title: Reclaim My Heart
    Author: Donna Fasano
    Why: So I won’t appear sexist, this one explores the relationship of a mother and her angst-ridden teenage son as well as other relationships. And I loved it!

  5. Mrs. Kangaroo’s New Baby
    by Virginia Munns

    Why? Because where else would you see an image of a kangaroo sweeping out her pouch to get ready for the new baby?

  6. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott — because Marmee is the most patient woman in the world.

    And for the younger set, The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown — because no matter where you run, Mom will always find you. Muahaha.
