Dear Mum, I love you by Ed Allen

Scholastic, 2015. ISBN 9781743626320
(Age: All) Highly recommended. Dear Mum, I Love You is a story book featuring letters and amazing images. Each letter tells us something the child loves about their mum. Each illustration shows animal babies and their mums together. Remove the letter or lift the flap to read about great mums. A lovely book for parents to read with their children! Giggle at the little bunnies busily making their mum a cake. Smile at the puffer fish as it tells its mum how she makes it feel safe.
The book is aimed at young readers but is highly recommended for all readers - no matter the age. Give it to your mum for Mother's Day. Read it in the class and have students create their own letters.
