The Books Kids Say Are the Best to Read with Their Moms

by Kari Ness Riedel

In honor of Mother’s Day, I asked kids and moms about their favorite books to read together. I was surprised at how unique the replies were across families. No two families chose the same book as their favorite. The books they named ranged from funny to tearjerkers to action-packed adventures. The common thread, though, was that the best memories came from snuggling up and getting lost in a story together. The cozy combination of mom plus a book is a wonderful way to end any day — especially Mother’s Day. If you’re looking for a new book to share with your little or not-so-little readers, check out these family favorites.
