Peta's Mother's Day Picks

Baby Bird’s Blankie by Margaret Wild and Gwyn Perkins (Working Title Press, $14.95, 9781921504099)

A delightful book about unconditional love that could be a pick for Mother's Day or Father's Day or Grandmother's Day. No matter how many times Baby Bird drops his blankie from the nest, his loving family rush to the rescue.

Koala Lou by Mem Fox, Illustrated by Pamela Lofts (Puffin, $14.95, 9780140540635)

This is the ultimate mummy book. Koala Lou does not win the Bush Olympics, but that hardly matters. Her Mum still says those magical words, 'Koala Lou, I do love you.' A classic Australian Mother's Day book.

Mums by David Bedford and Leonie Worthington (Little Hare, $10.95, 9781921049781)

Leopard's Mum can climb tall trees. Camel's Mum has knobbly knees. A visual celebration of Mums that will be enjoyed by young and old alike. Lift the flaps to learn about each animal Mum. A lovely Mother's Day present that can be read over and over again.
