Slate Picks - The Best Children’s Books That Celebrate Mothers | Multicultural Children's Literature | Scoop.it
Few experiences of parenthood can match the tenderness of reading a book with your child. And the best children’s books—with their lyricism, minimalism, and beautiful pictures—can hold equal wonder for adults. So what better time than Mother’s Day to share a great book with your child? And why not pick one that also, you know, celebrates how great moms are?
We queried top children’s book experts, authors, and librarians about their recommendations for Mother’s Day reading. You’ll find a range of children’s books that explore motherhood, family, and the love between children and their mothers in a host of ways. Among them are classics and a number of brand-new titles. All will remind you of how wondrous motherhood is. (And they might make great gifts for the moms in your life, too.)—Jay Deshpande
