Mother’s Day is such a special day! It is the one day where we, moms, get spoiled, right? Well, moms are much more than just a day of celebration. Why not celebrate moms and cuddle up with the kids to read some books that show how wonderful moms are. In this post, we share a beautiful list of such books that you and your little ones will absolutely love!

Books to Read with Kids This Mother’s Day
Featuring Moms and Kids:
I have highlighted some underneath this group of books and then in the next section are books featuring animals.

Love You Forever:
This is a definite must read and might even have you teary-eyed. If there’s only one book you can read off this list, this is my #1 suggestion. If you are a Friends fan and have watched and rewatched the episodes, LOL, this is the book that Joey reads at Rachel’s first birthday gathering for Emma. Besides this, you may already recognize a quote from the book:
“I’ll love you forever,
I’ll like you for always,
as long as I’m living
my baby you’ll be.”
If you read on the author’s website, you’ll will see that it’s not just a book for kids! “…. parents buy it for grandparents and grandparents buy it for parents and kids buy it for everybody and everybody buys it for kids.”
If I Could Keep You Little:
This book is one that every parent can relate too. I find myself contantly saying to my kids that they are growing to fast or that I wish they could stay this age for a little longer. Here’s a quote from the book:
If I could keep you little,
I’d keep you close to me.
But then I’d miss you growing
into who you’re meant to be!
Many of the books listed are part of a series. We love the Pinkalicious, Biscuit, and The Night Before series. Mommy Hugs incorporates counting.

God Gave Us You
This is another awesome series. You can see our book review of God Gave Us You here.
I Love You Mommy:
There are books for the other relatives too! We own jumbo-sized versions of I Love You Mommy and I Love You Grandma. Both are sweet books that also teach the little bear life lessons. In I Love You Grandma, Little Bear asks all kids of questions , such as Why do I have a nose, claws, and so on.
