Notable: Maybe Mom would like this


Maybe Mom would like this

Just two weeks until Mother's Day! Here are books that might make a good gift.

My Mother, My Heart: A Joyful Book to Color (Harper) by Eleri Fowler partakes of the grownups' coloring book craze, with sweet quotes and charming drawings ready to be colored in by moms and kids.

My Mrs. Brown (Simon & Schuster) by William Norwich, a veteran of Vogue, is a perfect novel for fashionista moms, the story of how a quiet woman's life is transformed by her quest for a dress that expresses her secret self.

Parent Hacks: 134 Genius Shortcuts for Life With Kids (Workman) by Asha Dornfest, with illustrations by Craighton Berman, is a cheery and practical collection of tips (just the thing for a new mom or mom-to-be), like clipping baby's fingernails while she's in a carrier and can't wiggle away.
