Mother's Mother's Day by Lorna Balian

Everyone celebrates Mother's Day, right?  How many generations of your family are still alive?  Do you get together for pictures?

Star Bright Books and Net Galley allowed me to download this story in ebook form (thank you).  It has been published and is available for purchase now.

The story begins with one little girl mouse taking a present to her mother.  But her mother isn't home!  It's because mother is taking a present to Grandmother, who isn't home either...

Each mouse is taking a present to their mother all the way up to great-great-great grandmother, who isn't home either.  At her house, there a cat in wait, so the mice all scurry home to the little one's house where the story began.  THAT'S where great-great-great grandmother is bringing her a present!

The story meanders through a big circle returning to the point of origin when the mice take shelter from the cat following them.  And they all have their treats, so they have a wonderful celebration together.

The illustrations are whimsical and the story sweet.  I think most little ones will enjoy reading this tale again and again.

Happy reading.
