Mother Daughter Bonding: Five Books to Share

September 7th, 2012 by

Reading together is a great way to bond with your family, no matter how old you are. Sharing a book with your mother or daughter can bring you closer together as you explore a new story.

“The Secret Life of Bees” by Sue Monk Kidd is a powerful and compelling story for mothers and daughters to pour over together. The tale deals with change, racism, the power of forgiveness and other themes that will touch readers of all ages. This helps explain it more. Frances O’Roark Dowell’s “The Secret Language of Girls” is another great option for moms and middle-school aged daughters. Throughout the story, Marylin and Kate deal with boys, new friends, divorce and other issues that test their friendship.

Moms and daughters will both love Ann Brashares’ “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,” a story of summer adventures and real-life challenges that are relatable and entertaining.

Other great books for moms and daughters to enjoy together include the Betty Smith classic “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn” and Jane Austen’s fun read “Pride and Prejudice.” Austen’s world is still surprisingly relevant today, and many mothers will enjoy re-reading this classic with their daughters. Smith’s captivating tale of growing up in Brooklyn in the early 1900s is as charming and enthralling as ever before.
