Mother’s Day Giveaway 2012- $50 Cash Card and Because Your Mommy Loves You

by Jennifer Donovan

Many of my Mother’s Day memories are not about a gift I received or special lunch out, but the special opportunity to reflect upon the gift motherhood is. On my 2nd Mother’s Day, my daughter was almost 2 — old enough to truly “celebrate” with me. We had enjoyed our season pass to our town’s zoo that Spring, and when I saw that they were having a Mother’s Day brunch, that’s where I wanted to go. I wanted to share the day with her.

A couple of years later, my mom, grandmother, sister, and I (and our families) had celebrated the big day together on Saturday night. Late that night, I realized my husband wasn’t in bed. He had been caring for daughter Amanda, who had been throwing up all night. I was weeks away from delivering my second child, and he didn’t want me to get sick. I relieved him on the couch outside her room at about 4:00 a.m. The worst had passed, but he was able to get some sleep. I stayed home from church  so that I could care for her, and though it was 8 years ago, it’s still the most meaningful Mother’s Day I’ve had. It somehow felt right.

I’m excited to be able to share this next Mother’s Day Giveaway with you, because I think it embodies this same spirit.

Because Your Mommy Loves You is a sweet picture book about a mother and son’s camping trip. She doesn’t coddle him, but as we moms know, sometimes that’s the best (though hardest way) to show our love. Throughout the story, the narrator says “She could have. . . . but she didn’t,” meaning she could have taken the easy way out, but instead she pushes him towards independence and allows him to enjoy everything that a fun camping trip has to offer.

Because we love our kids, we want to do special things with them, but we also take the time to train them.

Written by Andrew Clements (who you or your grade schoolers might know as the clever author of such novels as Frindle), and illustrated by R. W. Alley who created the image of Paddington Bear, Because Your Mommy Loves You is a read-aloud that would be great to share with a group, or to enjoy as a special mother-child book. If you are actually planning a camping trip (or enjoy camping as a family), it will be appreciated even more.

One lucky person (U.S. only) will win

  • Copy of Because Your Mommy Loves You
  • Customized photo frame engraved with “Because [insert child’s name] loves you!”
  • $50 Visa Cash card to enjoy Mother’s Day together!

I don’t have a favorite mother’s day book. I’m just realizing that there aren’t many books dedicated to mothers and mother’s day. We have to do something about that. We all need to make it our mission to write a mother’s day book about our mothers and present that to them. I don’t know about you all but my mom has always loved that personal touch. Smooches and may you have an spectacular mother’s day.

I join all those who love” Love You Forever” by Robert N. Munsch. The song the mother sings to her son is I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always,as long as I’m living my baby you’ll be. I now read it to my grandchildren and after all these years,I stiil can’t make it to the end without crying. Your book also sounds great for Mother’s Day!
