Overview


A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take." -Cardinal Mermillod

No one can portray the wonder of a new baby or the innocence of childhood quite like artist Becky Kelly. Her paintbrush manages to capture the perfect curve of a baby's plump cheek and the exuberance of a child at play. Whether it's a mother teaching her child about the wonder of nature or a wee woodland critter with a fuzzy baby, Becky captures every evocative nuance and expression with care.

Mother's Treasury is a collection of Becky's sumptuous illustrations and some of her favorite poems, stories, and sayings. Becky's timeless illustrations are paired with prose and poems by such well-loved authors as Maya Angelou, Mark Twain, Rudyard Kipling, Charles Dickens, and more. Dive into these beautiful pages: Laugh at a special story that might remind you of when your child was young, linger over a poignant poem, and be touched by the beauty of Becky's art as she celebrates motherhood, that most noble of professions.

Art from Becky makes this little book, complete with distinctive details like a ribbon marker and special embellishments, a true keepsake for every mother.
