210690365Okay, so I’m still stuck on Mother’s Day, humor me. From the editors of LIFE Books comes LIFE With Mother (Time Inc. Home Entertainment, $17.95), densely packed with pictures of mothers throughout the last few decades in poignant and playful poses. Accompanying almost every photo are quotes and proverbs such as my personal favorite:

“God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers.”

Shirley MacLaine

These, plus the varied selection of portraits from the past and present – from Diana, Princess of Wales to a Maryland mom of triplets – serve to celebrate moms around the world. This multi-faceted look at moms will warm any heart for Mother’s Day, a birthday, anniversary or to simply say you care.
