My Mom, who was a primary school teacher for most of her teaching career, always gave us books for special occasions, usually with a thoughtful word or two written in the front. There are many memorable ones but 2 that stick out are "Now We Are Six" by A. A. Milne - nearly every 6 year old my Mom knew received this book from her on their 6th Birthday - and The Lorax by Dr. Seuss when I graduated University with a degree in Environmental Studies. My Mom encouraged and nurtured a love of books and reading in me and I still enjoy curling up with a good book and passing hours getting lost in stories.
