Reading for Moms

Okay, mommies, grab your tea and reading glasses. This week's reading recommendations are for you! Not that you need any parenting advice, because you're already fabulous, right? Sometimes, though, you just need confirmation that you are on the right track rearing your little ones.

There are, literally, a gazillion (maybe not literally, because I don't even know if "gazillion" is an actual quantity. Is it?!) parenting books to choose from, but listed below are just a few I've had the chance to peruse.


1. The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers: Reclaiming Our Passion, Purpose, and Sanity by Meg Meeker, M.D.

2. The Self-Aware Parent: Resolving Conflict And Building A Better Bond With Your Child

3. The Hurried Child: Growing Up Too Fast Too Soon by David Elkind, Ph. D

4. How To Raise The Next President: A Parent's Guide To Giving Your Kid The Secrets of Success by Sally Sacks, M. Ed.

5. Giving Your Child the Excellence Edge: 10 Traits Your Child Needs to Achieve Lifelong Success by Vicki Caruana

May the 4th be with you!

Happy Star Wars Day, folks! And in honor of this magnificent day, I present to you some fun and out of this world reading choices for your little storm trooper! 


For your preschooler, there is Star Wars ABC. What a cool way to learn the alphabet and the characters of this awesome franchise! D is for Darth Vader, H is for Han Solo, and L is for Luke!

For your kindergartener, we have the Star Wars Phonics set, which includes 10 books and 2 workbooks. With the wisdom of Yoda, your little one will be reading in no time! 

For your early elementary children, we have fun beginner graphic novels by Jeffrey Brown. These little books offer a fun tongue-in-cheek look at fatherhood from Darth Vader's perspective. 

Not pictured here are preschool through 2nd grade Stars Wars workbooks that touch on shapes, colors, math, writing, and more. These are available through www.workman.com

Enjoy this fun day, and May the 4th be with you!!
