Love You Forever | Robert N Munsch

Turning to my littens for some book recs today! Recently found out I'm having a baby boy and realized I don't know many mother/son stories... Is it just me, or does the father/son relationship take precedence in our media?? 🤔 Any suggestions out there for good mother/son books? Especially if the son is middle grade/teen! I know gender means very little, but I still feel this is a void in my reading life now. HELP!

MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm I‘ll be lurking for answers to this as I also need recommendations! 😅 My sister-in-law gifted me two books from the “Stinky Face” series, and they‘re both focused on a mother/son relationship. I love the illustration style too! 2w
ShyBookOwl @wanderinglynn Omg this sounds amazing!! Thank you 2w

ShyBookOwl @MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm Haha well, congrats (?) and good luck! Let me know if you come across any other good ones and I'll do the same! I'll definitely check out Stinky Face 2w
wanderinglynn I‘d also say the Harry Potter series (although not physically present, his parents have a lot of influence on Harry) & the Percy Jackson series. 2w
ShyBookOwl @wanderinglynn Ah ha! I was wondering if Percy Jackson would be a good one! Thx! I only read the first few HPs about 5 yrs ago. Maybe I'll return to them if they're still on my kindle lol 2w
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm Congrats to you too! 🥰 2w
PathfinderNicole Board book wise, Sandra Boynton‘s Pookie series is about a little boy pig and his mom makes appearances! My son loved those when he was small! But I feel your pain, it does seem like there‘s very little for mother/son relationships! 2w
ShyBookOwl @PathfinderNicole So frustrating, right?! Thanks for the rec! 2w

Mother Bruce | Ryan T. Higgins

A grumpy bear had eggs that ended up being ducklings and he was angry because he thought they were hard-boiled. He ends up loving them and forming a bond with them. This book shows that you can make good out of an unexpected situation. Friendships can always be made.

Mother Bruce | Ryan T. Higgins
Pickpick

Published in 2015. Mother Bruce is about a bear who likes to be alone. He stumbles across a flock of geese babies. The geese convince him to raise them and the all end up migrating to the beach together. I would read this story to my class because its a funny story that talks about an unusual type of family. Students will be able to relate to this story as well and talk about how all families are different.

kallikramer This is a fiction story that won the E.B. White Read aloud. 2w

3 ⭐ This book has very few pages but lots of words. It starts with a mommy bear and a baby bear and the baby‘s asking questions. The baby tells us everything they already know but then ask mommy when they don‘t know something. These answers get long and while accurate a bit boring. This book wasn‘t bad but it‘s not something to add to my collection

I am with Anna's mom on this one. It's time for these two to jump in the shower! Sensibilities may be more European than North American. #PictureBooks
