Mother’s Day was recognized across the United States this past Sunday and individuals all over celebrated their mothers and showed them how much they loved them.  My boys made amazing cards for me that expressed to me how much they love me and that I have made a positive impact in their lives.  I love my boys so much!  They mean the world to me!  So, I was really excited to feature a new children’s book called Because Your Mommy Loves You.

Because Your Mommy Loves You was written by Andrew Clements and illustrated by R.W. Alley.  The book is ideal for children ages 4 and up.  You can purchase Because Your Mommy Loves You in bookstores or online, retailing for $16.99.

ABOUT THE BOOK

In this sweet companion book to Because Your Daddy Loves You, a little boy and his mom go on a hiking trip and camp out under the stars. Mommy is as calm and reassuring, but also goes far to foster her son’s independence in an encouraging and loving way. As heartwarming as its predecessor, this read-aloud book is sure to become a family favorite.

    Thanks for this review. I was looking for a book for my nephew’s birthday about a mother’s love. We lost his Mom last May & I want him to know how much she loved him. I think this book sounds wonderful thank you!
