To be a mother is to be a teacher. Now, that is not to say that just because someone is a mother she is automatically qualified to teach in a classroom, but often mothers are among the first people to teach children their earliest lessons like their first words and right and wrong. So in honor of mothers everywhere, we at OutlooK-12 are dedicated this month’s School Library to children’s books about mothers. We also want to wish you, our readers, a Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mothers in your lives.
“Pinkalicious Mother’s Day Surprise”
by Victoria Kann Publisher: HarperFestival ISBN-13: 978-0062245878
Pinkalicious is having a wonderful dream about a cupcake castle when her alarm goes off early. The moon and stars are still in the sky, but it’s Mother’s Day, and Pinkalicious has a lot to do to get ready. Tiptoeing into the kitchen, she makes her mom a culinary masterpiece, Pinkalicious’ Pinkamazing Yogurt Parfait. Soon, she has her special breakfast ready complete with a napkin tied with (of course) a pink bow, but she still needs to write her mother a poem. Unfortunately, Pinkalicious cannot figure out what to write, and she’s running out of time! Maybe her alarm clock didn’t go off soon enough after all.
