These 14 books to read with your child on Mother’s Day will give you all the feels. You know, these are the ones that will make you cry. Give them as gifts to your mom or for the new mom-to-be at a baby shower party, or read them with your kids. Either way, you’ll probably go into the next room and ugly cry when you’re done!

If you have read any of these popular books, and you’re a Mother – watch out. You will choke back the tears while you read these. I’m not kidding. I have several of these on our bookshelf. They are some personal favorites and a few others that are well-known to be the perfect Mother’s Day read-aloud.

Oh my gosh, #12.
