Rating: 8.5

Description (from Amazon):

Every mom needs a pick­-me-­up now and then, so why not every day? With 365 gorgeously designed quotes about motherhood, one for every day of the year, Daily Motherhood is the perfect gift for every mother. This beautiful quote book will inspire, uplift, and energize moms, reminding them why they do what they do and recommitting them to the world’s greatest job: motherhood.

What I Liked:

You know when you stumble across a gorgeous Instagram feed, and you just keep scrolling and scrolling and before you know it you’ve spent twenty minutes immersed in lovely photographs? It’s like someone put that feed together into a darling little book.

This was a truly beautiful compilation.

The pictures are such delicious eye candy that I devoured this book in one sitting. Oops! But starting tomorrow I’m going to go through it properly, day by day. I’m really excited.

The quotes included evoked an excellent range of different emotions. Some were funny, some made me sit and think, some made me a little teary. People included in the book ranged from the Dalai Lama to Alice Walker, from Michael Jordan to Winston Churchill, and from Gordon B. Hinckey all the way down to everyone’s favourite author, Unknown (also known as Anonymous).

This might seem like a little thing, but I appreciated that they included a picture of a child with Down’s Syndrome.

It has a cute little ribbon to mark your page. What is it about books with ribbons? It just makes me feel so fancy.

What I Didn’t Like:

A few of the pages had text with a colour that was a little bit too close to the colour of the background. Probably only 5 in the whole book though, so it wasn’t bad.

I found the descriptions of the authors of each quote a bit distracting. I would have preferred if it had just said, “Author” or “Philanthropist” or “Actress,” as opposed to listing their country of origin and a bunch of descriptors. Only some of them had mini biographies though, and others didn’t. I’m not sure why!

Extras:

Here are a few cute pages from the publisher’s (Familius) Instagram feed:

TL;DR:

Bite-sized Mommy treats! That you don’t have to share!
