Follow Friday

Feature and Follow is a blog hop that was started by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we will answer! This is a great opportunity for bloggers to network and interact. This weeks question is:

This Sunday is Mother's Day in North America.  In celebration, what are some of your favourite books with mother/child relationships?

This is a tough one because I haven't read many mother/child relationship books recently.  However, I think I'm going to have to go with a children's title - I Love you Forever by Robert Munsch.  When I was teaching overseas, I had a class of four year olds and English was their second language. The Chinese teacher was reading this book to them so I decided to read them the English version.  One of my classes gave me a copy of this book in Chinese to thank me and it was filled with their photos.  Beside each photo they had hand-written their names.  I have fond memories of my time with these children and now being a mother myself, I like to read this story to my daughter.
