Mrs. Archer's Book Notes

An elementary school librarian's blog about books and library happenings.

Review: What Not To Give Your Mom on Mother’s Day


What Not To Give Your Mom On Mother's Day

What Not To Give Your Mom on Mother’s Day by Martha Simpson

Goodreads Summary:  A little boy offers advice on what NOT to give your mom on Mother’s Day, unless she’s an animal. For example, don’t give her a rotting log unless she’s a salamander or a bunch of flies unless she’s a spider!

This is a great book to not only discuss Mother’s Day, but the animal world, too.  The colorful illustrations will appeal to young children.  Great read aloud for younger children.  It would also be great for a classroom compare and contrast lesson on the difference between animal moms and human moms.

I am returning this year as the librarian for Academy Endeavour Elementary. I am a complete and total bookworm. I love talking books with students and parents. If you ask me what my favorite book is I will tell you that it changes every day. I hope you will stop by this blog often and discuss books with me. Or drop into the library and see what our wonderful students are learning.
