I Love Mommy

Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms of the world!
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes,
because that is the doorway to her heart,
the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,
but the beauty of a woman is reflected in her soul.
It is in the caring that she lovingly gives,
the passion that she shows,
and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!

I Love Mommy by Lizi Boyd is a super sturdy picture book (perfect for all: babies, toddlers and their older siblings) with sweet, rounded edges on the pages and beautiful contemporary illustrations done in gouache. Capturing those simple shared moments of mother and child that all moms can relate to. It has a companion book as well, I Love Daddy, because Father's Day is right around the corner!

Here is a link to Design is Mine's beautiful photo round-up of mother and child. Enjoy the day.


  1. That quote is now on this blog 2x I love it. It's part of a poem Sam Levenson wrote to his granddaughter and you can find it in its entirety in our Jan 3, 08 Capricorn post.
    I love Mommy looks very sweet.
    Happy Mother's Day!!!!!

  2. Thanks, I'm glad you had a GREAT Mother's Day too! I do miss Santa Cruz and the awesome bookstore...
    It's funny, I LOVE this poem too and now I know why it struck such a familiar chord with me.
    Thank you again Sam Levenson!
