Review: A Letter to My Mom by Lisa Erspamer
Published April 7th 2015 by Crown Archetype
Including letters from Melissa Rivers, Shania Twain, will.i.am, Christy Turlington, and Kristin Chenoweth.
Just in time for Mother’s Day, the next book in the A Letter to My series (after A Letter to My Dog and A Letter to My Cat) takes on mothers, with celebrities and civilians writing letters of gratitude and admiration to the women who raised them, alongside gorgeous, intimate photos. (Goodreads)
Honestly I knew I didn’t have time to read through the entire book before sending it off to my mother for Mother’s Day, but the letters I flipped through were absolutely magical. It contains dozens of letters written by celebrities to their mother. My favorite part were the personal pictures. The layout was easy to adjust to and the addition of a biography at the end of the book made for an overall good experience. It also inspired me to pull out some paper and write, rather than type a letter to send my mother this Mother’s Day. I tucked it right inside the front cover of the book, and I hope she treasures it for many years to come (both the letter & the book).
