Sure, you can say what you want to say in a card, but sometimes there isn’t enough space. These books, though, are great reflections about what it means to be a mum.

I’m Not Perfect, I’m a Mom. Most motherhood books tell you how to be the perfect mom and how to raise the perfect kid. This book is not one of them. Written by Jasmine Han and Shelly Holly, I’m Not Perfect, I’m A Mom is a collection of light-hearted — and true — stories about the bizarre experience of motherhood. From dealing with pregnancy to dealing with public tantrums, from making it through the terrible twos (and ones and threes) to trying not to strangle hubby while he is trying to be “helpful”, this book is a must-read for all mothers.

Mum Is Where The Heart IsIn this uproarious memoir, Cultural Medallion winner You Jin employs her wry, inimitable style as she looks what it means to be a mum. The book is filled with her usual wit, warmth and candour, as You Jin bares some of her deepest emotions that have grown out of her personal observations and everyday experiences of life as a mother.

Comes with: A rose-scented candle by Hush Candle, which is made from 100% soy wax and natural Bulgarian rose essential oil — it’s the perfect accompaniment for a good read.
