A Gift From the Sea
by Anne Morrow Lindburg
128 LIN 

My mother recommended this book when I was struggling. She said that sometimes, we need help seeing the beauty of life around us when we are going through dark times. Mrs. Lindburg’s poetry is truly beautiful, and helps brighten your spirit with the purest of hope and joy.

Great American Classics Cookbook

Mom always had us in the kitchen helping ever since we were little. My first cookbook was one she handed down to me, and it had the basics. A good, classic cookbook cannot be beat!

Excuse Me, But I Was Next: How to Handle the Top 100 Manners Dilemmas
by Peggy Post
395 POS

As a mom, I try very hard to get my teen to use manners. I can only hope and pray that one day, when he is an adult, he will remember all of the lessons and corrections we have gone through. One can never be prepared enough, and keeping a book on manners in your personal library would be a great idea!

Americanah
by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

My mother introduced me to this author because she's Nigerian just like my family. Because my mom knows I love reading and struggle with writing great stories, she thought me reading a female Nigerian writer would be encouraging and motivating.
