The Mothers Book

The Mothers Book
By Elma Van Vliet
With Mothers Day fast approaching I want to recommend a book to give, called 'The Mothers Book' by Elma Van Vliet, it is delightful and was pointed out to me by my 18yr old daughter saying what a lovely idea it was.
Mothers can write all the details about their children that may not be passed on and possibly forgotten in time.
Happy reading and reminiscing.I'm also publishing this on my other blog
