How many times as a mom have you dreamed that you had an extra pair of hands?  This month’s favorite is your dream come true. If Mom Had Three Arms is written by author Karen Kaufman Orloff and illustrated by one of our family favorites, Pete Whitehead.  You’ll love the mom with nine arms who “would throw lots of pitches” or the mom with ten arms who could “scratch all his itches”.  This is a fun and colorful counting book that has a touching ending that will soon become a family favorite.

I was at the book store the other day and noticed an expecting mom sifting through all the countless pregnancy and baby book titles. Sound familiar? As I did with her, I want to share with you my favorite books which helped form my philosophies and made the greatest impact on my development as a mom. I will begin this month with Children the Challenge by Rudolph Dreikurs. This book is a must read, a must own and a must reread. The short chapters will keep your attention and provide you with easy to comprehend strategies for managing your children and their behavior. Dreikurs philosopy of using logical consequences to raise helathy kids inspired me and this book still sits on my bedside table. Check it out on
