As my girls grow up, it’s interesting to see how their preferences for books are also changing. They have pretty much graduated from Dora The Explorer’s bilingual books and other similar titles that they used to love…ahem too much!

But they haven’t got tired of the books that feature the strong bond between parent and child. I think those sweet stories are comforting and reassuring to them. So they would never get old!

Read below our favorite bilingual children’s books about mothers and the special connection of love that exist between us and our children. If you are an immigrant mother like me, there are great titles that I am sure you will also enjoy. Let me know in the comments if you have a favorite one.
