The Best Books to Give This Holiday!

Love in Mid Air, The Divorce Party
I'm a book whore. I just can't stop myself from buying them, downloading them and searching for the next one I'm going to fall in love with. So it's no surprise that I LOVE to give my favorite books as gifts during the holidays. Here are the books that I'll be stuffing my friends' stockings with this year.

I always said I'd never be that mom. You know -- the one who just has to have her kids in the best school in the best district with the best teachers? The one who thinks that the right kindergarten is going to make or break her 5-year-old's future?


The International 'Mommy' Sign

Different groups of people have always used hand signals as a way to identify themselves and show respect. The military has a salute, and gangs have, um, gang signs. Even my college sorority had a secret sign you could throw across the room to say hello! But what about moms?
