Review: A Mother’s Song by Janet Lawler & Kathleen Kemly (Illus.)

Janet Lawler has created a beautiful follow-up to her acclaimed  A Father’s Song—and a wonderful celebration of the bond between mother and child.

All through the year, from summer showers to winter snows, a mother and daughter treasure their special time together.  Hand in hand, they wander through the sunny garden, wade through shallow puddles, harvest crunchy apples, and skate and spin on a frozen pond.  But above all, they’re…

happy to share

the magic that’s here,

all around, everywhere.

Lawler’s gentle words and Kathleen Kemly’s lovely art make this the ideal Mother’s Day book


Release Date: 2010

A lovely rhythm of rhyme and almost song-like. A great read-a-long and the pictures are a great accompaniment which basically helps a young reader identify the words to the picture. The art in the book is very calm yet the colors will draw attention to the listener.

What would be a great rhyming read-a-long book that you would highly recommend?
