I want to share with you my list of favorite inspiring books for Moms this Mother’s Day! I am a book addict. I am also one who tends to love reading parenting books. I think it is because I love reading great tips and advice to guide me in my parenting. I have never fully subscribed to any parenting book, but I do grow from each of them. These are a few of the books about mothers and parenthood that have influenced me.
