Maybe you or your mom would enjoy glimpses of what mothers were reading a hundred or more years ago when they were hoping for advice, encouragement, recipes . . . .
I’ve linked each title to the page where you can download it free to read on Kindle.
The value of a praying mother, Isabel C. Byrum, 1911
The Prospective Mother, a Handbook for Women During Pregnancy, J. Morris Siemons, 1912
Practical Suggestions for Mother and Housewife, Marion Mills Miller, c.1900
(Note: The opinions expressed in these books are not necessarily those of the author of this blog!)
When you dip into any of these, comment to let us know what you DO agree with or what’s really different now.
