Goodnight Opus by Berkeley Breathed
Goodnight Opus

Kate Benson, June 19, 2012

Opus and his Milky Way team add to their Goodnight routine by wishing a good night to a startled cat, Abe Lincoln, and six billion cow mudders (among others). The story is sweet and funny without being sacharine, and holds up well through at least 210 readings to a small child.

Then Came You by Jennifer Weiner
Then Came You

Kate Benson, June 7, 2012

Weiner's writing captures those secret thoughts you have at 2 in the morning about love, marriage, family, and life, and presents them in stories that are engaging. In this novel, she explores motherhood from a variety of angles in a book that has some substance but is still light enough to enjoy during stolen moments with a bite of chocolate on the side.

Certain Girls by Jennifer Weiner
Certain Girls

Kate Benson, May 13, 2010

A friend once described the mother-and-teen-daughter relationship as "two wet cats in a burlap sack". Cannie and her daughter Joy approach this level of livlieness as Joy approaches her Bat Mitzvah and negotiates the ethics of adolescence. In addition, an emotional plot twist left me crying along with the main characters. With my 10-month-old daughter asleep in my lap, I couldn't put the book down for the last hour of reading.

Run Like a Mother: How to Get Moving--And Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity by Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea
Run Like a Mother: How to Get Moving--And Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity

Kate Benson, May 2, 2010

Whether you're new to motherhood, running, or both, Shea and Bowen welcome you into the tribe of running mothers. There is no guilt and no judgement. There are also no excuses why you can't get out the door and get moving, one way or another. Great book, especially if you're looking for motivation to get healthier, lose some baby weight, or feel less isolated from a world that doesn't require regular diaper changes.
