Happy Mother's Day to all the moms and women who took care of children whether your own or for someone. My FB friends all write they have the best mom. I am not going to argue, but my mom is in the top 1% of great.
A fond memory I have with my mom is reading time. My grammar school years I was a horrible reader. I was placed in extra help classes. My mom, yes a school teacher, would read with me at night. We read all the Little House on the Prarie books, A Taste of Black Berries, Dan and Anne, and I'm sure I'm missing some from that year. My reading improved and I started reading books on my own.
Now as a grown up we read the same books, sometimes. Her favorites right now are:
Water for Elephants - flashback of a man's time at the circus with an elephant named Rosie.
House of Riverton - set in present time and flashback. About a granddaughter learning about her grandmother
Garden Spells - contempory story regarding girls with magical powers.
I loved all of these books also. I'm happy to have a relationship with my mom that books are a part of. What are some of yours and your mom's favorite books?
