You’ve gotta love this time of year. First, because it’s finally starting to warm up…are those buds I see out on the trees from my sunroom? And second, it’s the time of year when my writer friends’ books are hitting the stores just in time for Mother’s Day! For now, here’s a look at three great reads that will be available starting this April plus, in the carousel above, you’ll see some more picks that are on the Role Mommy must-have book list.
Perfectly Imperfect: A Life in Progress is the latest book on motherhood by Lee Woodruff, the author of the New York Times bestseller In an Instant: A Family’s Journey of Love and Healing. Lee is also a regular parenting contributor to Good Morning America and she’s one of the most gifted writers I’ve been lucky enough to know over the years. She shares her funny and poignant mom-oirs in this much-anticipated April 21st release by Randomhouse. Visit Lee’s website for more information about the book as well as her tour schedule and trust me, if she’s coming through your hometown, you won’t want to miss her. Check out the video below as she reads a chapter from her book about losing something near and dear to heart. Ironically, the same topic has been a sore subject for me these past few months too!
Stop Second-Guessing Yourself–The Toddler Years: A Field-Tested Guide to Confident Parenting is Jen Singer’s latest release and this time, she focuses on one of the most difficult ages and stages to understand and satisfy – although my friends tell me the teen years are even scarier. Jen is going to be embarking on a really cool blog tour where she’ll be dropping by select blogs and imparting her sage words of wit and wisdom. And, she’s also one of our contributors to C:// Mom Run, a humor anthology (Release Date November 2009/Plain White Press) and road show where she will be sharing one of her personal stories on stage on May 7 in New York City when we showcase some of America’s favorite humor bloggers and authors.

Because I Said So – I’ve plugged it before and I will just keep plugging it every chance I get. This is my blogger BFF Dawn Meehan’s first book release in what I believe will turn into one of many books on her life as a mom of six who named her kids after cities in the Rand McNally Atlas. Dawn’s blog gets thousands of visits per month and people return to it because the things she writes, and vlogs are just laugh out loud funny. So if you’re looking for a fabulous humor book for moms, then we’ve got just the answer. Buy Because I Said So – this one is destined to be a best seller.
