Book Description
Often, words cannot adequately explain the sincere emotions that make up a relationship. But a single photograph can speak volumes. The baby strapped to her mother’s bosom as she works the fields. The mom watching her child on a playground. The woman in church, trying not to notice that her child has fallen asleep. These moving images have been captured in black-and-white and in color. No matter how--or where--each was created, the amazing bond between the mother and her child is evident.

In Mothers and Children, world-famous contributors Annie Griffiths Belt, Sam Abell, Jodi Cobb, Joel Sartore, and more reveal the whimsical and poignant emotions of the maternal relationship, caught on camera in 100 beautiful photographs from around the world. Destined to be a perennial gift book, Mothers and Children celebrates the fascinating array of expressions for the universal themes of work, play, and home life of families.

An introduction from mother and writer Lynne Perri will set the stage for the visual journey through the hearts and homes of mothers everywhere. Lyrical essays follow, co-written by Craig Wilson, about work, play, and life at home.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I ordered three Mothers and Children books to give to my daughters and daughter in law for a Mothers Day gift. They loved the beautiful and sensitive pictures and it makes a nice small coffee table book. When it's National Geographic photos, you know you're getting the best. Highly recommended to peruse over and over.

Format: Hardcover
This book made the perfect gift for my mother on mother's day. As she went through the pictures of mothers and children around the world, it reminded her of some of our own memories together. It was a lot of fun to watch and read. It was everything i wanted it to be for my mother.
