Just in time for Mother's Day, the next book in the A Letter to My series (after A Letter to My Dog and A Letter to My Cat) takes on mothers, with celebrities and civilians writing letters of gratitude and admiration to the women who raised them, alongside gorgeous, intimate photos.
A LETTER TO MY MOM
“You inspire me to be a better mother, and I have often said it was you who taught me to be ‘grateful and graceful’ - which are words that I truly live by to this day…”
— MOLLY SIMS, Mother, Model, Actress“Like most mothers and daughters, we’ve had our ‘moments.’ But there is no one that I trust, and appreciate, more than you. You are always the first person that I call in times of need but also in times of triumph.”
— LISA LING, Mother, Journalist, Writer“Thank you my Dearest, Darling Mum, for your vibrance, for your beauty, for the way you glided like a swan when you entered any room.”
— SARAH FERGUSON-DUCHESS OF YORK, Mother, Author, Duchess“I loved entertaining you. You were the best audience ever. Those times I did skits for you while you lay sick in bed were the times that made me believe I could be a performer, that I could make people laugh and cry because you could see me. Now when I laugh and play I do it in honor of you.
—MARIEL HEMINGWAY, Mother, Author, Actress

So many touching letters what will bring a smile to your face and tears to your eyes. A Letter to My Mom is the perfect way to celebrate the mom’s in your life this Mother’s Day. Each letter is so beautifully written & I loved that not only are there letters from celebrities, but some from everyday “normal” people as well. You’ll find letters written from all ages, from siblings to their mom, letters from adopted and biological children, and even a few letters written to moms who have passed away. The diversity of each letter is beautiful in it’s own unique way.
Be sure to have the tissues on standby and if you’re gifting this to your mom this Mother’s Day, you could even include a package of tissues for her and perhaps a letter of your own. A Letter to My Mom allows you to pause and remember just how much you love your mother. You’ll feel inspired and an overwhelming sense of pride and love for your mom once you’ve finished reading this.
