Today, we honor the women in our lives who bore us, nursed us, clothed us, wiped us, bathed us, comforted us, raised us up, and laid us down to bed each night. These women might have been our biological mothers or not, but they have loved us unconditionally through our best of times and our worst of times, and they are ever deserving of our praise and appreciation.
We read Are you my Mother? written and illustrated by PD Eastman. It is a part of the Dr. Seuss Beginner Books, so it is repetitive and melodic, making it perfect for early readers or emerging readers. The story is a sweet tale of a little baby bird searching for its mother, and we hope that everyone has the chance today to find the women in their lives who have mothered them, and let them know that we couldn't do it without them!
Happy Mother's Day!
