On Your Bookshelf: A Reading List for Moms


On Your Bookshelf-Feature

Books can be a mom’s best friend. Reading empowers us with knowledge and give us answers to those tiny questions that keep us up in the middle of the night: Why won’t she stop crying? How can I get him to sleep in his own bed? Is a smart phone a good idea for my 13-year-old?

Sharing is something that moms do freely and happily. Once you’re “in the mom circle,” so to speak, you become part of this wonderful cycle of giving and receiving information that touches our children forever.

Below is a list of books shared by moms just like you that address a variety of concerns. So, choose one, put up your feet, and enjoy a new perspective on parenting. And when you’re done, be sure to pass it along.

Hello, I’m Stephanie! I grew up climbing trees and chasing fireflies here in NH, and I love watching my son Rohan do the same! I adore the Seacoast’s close-knit community and constant stream of wholesome family activities, and I feel grateful to be here. I have a Master’s in English Education and have taught both at home and abroad. Writing has been a quiet passion of mine since childhood, and I admire anyone who has the courage to put pen to paper and express themselves. My husband and I are from different cultures, so ours is a multicultural, bilingual home. We divide our time and hearts to family both in the U.S. and India, trying to give our son the best of both worlds. It isn’t always easy balancing here and there, but I grew up watching my European parents do the same. They taught me to be curious, appreciative, and respectful when merging two cultures, because you find more silver linings than roadblocks. This inspires me to be a better mother every day.
