Top three picks for Mother's Day

Stuck for a last minute Mother's Day gift? Here are our top three picture book picks:

1. Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney, illustrated by Anita Jeram

"I love you right up to the moon – and back." The story of Little and Big Nutbrown Hares’ efforts to express their love for each other has become a bestselling classic, and is a firm favourite with children aged 0-5 years. 

 2. Say Hello Like This by Mary Murphy

Different kinds of animals say hello in their own way. Some say it LOUD – Bow-wow! Some say it PROUD – Meow! And some say it SILLY – Hee-haw! Say Hello Like This is an ideal read-aloud for the very youngest of listeners. Have fun making all the different animal sounds that are sure to have babies and toddlers gurgling, giggling, clapping hands and making plenty more of their own noises, too!

3. My Mum is Beautiful by Jessica Spanyol

In this gorgeous picture book, Jessica Spanyol captures the wonderful bond between a mother and a child. Told from the perspective of a small bear, this book encapsulates how love is measured in a child's mind: a gesture so simple can mean so very much. Perfect for children 0-5 years.
