"M" is for the Million Things She Gave Me

Mother's Day : A Great Day for Stories
To celebrate mom in a special way, why not cuddle on the couch together and read some special stories made just for mom and child? Here are a few of our favorites:

I Love You Mommy by Lizi Boyd
Just Me and My Mom by Mercer Mayer
Me & You : A Mother-Daughter Album by Lisa Thiesing
A Special Day for Mommy by Dan Andreasen
Tucking Mommy In by Morag Loh
A Present for Mom by Vivian French
Max and the Dumb Flower Picture by Martha Alexander

If you haven't decided what to give mom on her special day (Sunday May 9th) be sure to check out the following "how to" books and websites to get your creative juices flowing:

Mother's Day Crafts by Jean Eick

Or, skip the gift and check out the Hartford Courant's list of where to enjoy family brunch at nearby restaurants. Locally, Angelico's Lakehouse will be offering a Mother's Day buffet; Sadler's (Marlborough) also offers a gourmet breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays. Add to your Mother's Day dining choices menus offered by Governor's Tavern and Rossini's.
