Children's LiteratureCharlie tells Snoopy that he should write a letter to his mother, but Snoopy just does not have a clue what to write. Woodstock is feeling a bit blue because he can't find his mother anywhere. Snoopy muses that birds are not like dogs "because once kids leave the nest, that's it!" The girls head off to buy cards for their mothers and Lucy tells Linus that she read in the newspaper "that nothing pleases a mother more on Mother's Day than receiving a long-distance call from one of her children." Linus races off to find a phone booth and calls his mother. Charlie Brown had a great surprise planned—everyone is gathered to play baseball, but then they remember that it is Mother's Day and they should be home doing nice things for their mom's. Charlie had planned to let his mother throw out the first pitch, but now there are no players. It did not work out quite as planned, but he does wish her a happy Mother's Day. Not too exciting, but the story does present a cast of characters that kids like, so for many the book will be a treat. 2004, Little Simon, Ages 3 to 6.
