M is for Mom: A Child's Alphabet
by Mary Ann McCabe Riehle
The love between a mother and her child is precious and everlasting. No two relationships are the same, yet there are shared experiences and memories to which every mother can relate. From the warm embrace of a hug to the soft whispers of encouragement, some of the many ways a mother expresses her love can be found in M is for Mom: A Child's Alphabet. A is for the Arms that hug and hold me tight. While in those arms I see your face and know I'm in my favorite place. Tender, evocative artwork provides an unforgettable backdrop as mother and child embrace, learn, and love...from A to Z. Educator/author Mary Ann McCabe Riehle has motivated students and adults to follow their dreams and tell their stories. A featured speaker at reading and writing conferences, she hopes that M is for Mom will encourage readers of all ages to honor and cherish special times together. Mary Ann lives in Dexter, Michigan. Chris Ellison has illustrated both children's picture books and adult fiction for the past 16 years. M is for Mom is his fifth book for Sleeping Bear Press. Other titles include The Lucky Star and Let Them Play (a 2006 Notable Social Studies Trade Book for Young People). Chris lives in Petal, Mississippi.
