This Japanese picture book award winning title tells of the celebration of Mother’s Day from the perspective of a 10 year old boy. His teacher tasks the class to write a letter their mother’s to express their love as a Mother’s Day tribute. Instead of writing the usual “Thank you, I love you.”, the little boy openly shares his feelings about his mother’s habits with her. While he grumbles about her nagging, he also tells her how deeply he loves her.
Illustrated in the style of childlike drawings, this heartwarming yet hilarious book makes for great heart to heart talk material with children.
Free link to audio read aloud of the book will be included.
