A New Mother's Prayers (Book) - 7/15/2010 8:41:11 AM|
I enjoy Jayne Jaudon Ferrerís writings. In this work, Ferrer has gathered a charming compilation of thirty-five odes regarding the myriad emotions a new, and all motherís experience.
Presented as small prayers; each verse is as a talk with God to articulate the weariness, delight, marvel, aggravation, and even confusion experienced by those of us who have shared our homes and lives with children of any age.
The mind-set and portrayals communicated through these earnest words are those that mothers, teachers, caretakers, and everyone with an interest in motherhood can attest.
Ferrer presents her notions, ideas and values as the deeply held emotions we begin to experience with the birth or adoption of a child and covers the gamut of delight, bemusement and even times of sorrowfulnesss that motherhood brings.
Happy to recommend Jayne Jaudon Ferrerís A New Motherís Prayers as a tuck in shower gift, hospital basket gift and just for giving and reading.

Dancing With My Daughter (Book) - 7/15/2010 6:55:14 AM
The flow of writer/poet Ferrer's writing is delicate and graceful then swinging and twirly, now foot stomping and then swaying to the beat of the hearts of Mother and Daughter. The reader follows Mom and child from the moments of choosing the perfect name to birth through the terrible twos and on to watching a beautiful butterfly emerge from the little girl cocoon. Harmony and discord, adoration and frustration each is realized, accepted and met with intuitive understanding that without the one the other would not be so sweet.
September Lullaby with its heartfelt sincerity might be the mantra for every mother trying to help their own child cope with the uncertainty caused on 9 1 1. Words spilling from the pages of Dancing with my Daughter: poems of love, wisdom & dreams are filled with merriment and admonition, rueful awakening and acceptance. The awe new mother's experience is soon offset with the antics of a toddler bounding through the house with all the abandon of a hippo on ice skates. Dainty dresses give way to styles that cause a mother to cringe before a sophisticated, stylish young woman appears. The reader considers both her personal childhood and the bonds she is forging with her own child while savoring the words Writer/poet Ferrer cleverly presents on the pages of Dancing with my Daughter: poems of love, wisdom & dreams.
Lovely gift book for a new mom, Your mom, or Grandmother. While I have only sons, I enjoyed the read, thought of my nieces and am happy to recommend Jayne Jaudon Ferrerís Dancing with My Daughter: Poems of Love, Wisdom & Dreams.

A Mother of Sons (Book) - 7/15/2010 6:44:27 AM
Spanning some eighty-five pages the reader is treated to a variety of heartfelt odes written for and about sons by a loving Mom. A Mother of Sons: poems of love, wisdom & dreams is exactly that; verses filled with affection, common sense and reverie. Talented writer/poet Jayne Jaudon Ferrer presents elegant lyrical work in this sylvan composition. Moms and Grandmoms whether they are lovers of poetry or not are sure to enjoy A Mother of Sons: poems of love, wisdom & dreams. Lovers of poetry will be doubly delighted as they read each passage with care, stopping often to savor a word or a phrase and then moving on to the next enchanting portion.
As might be supposed; I am also a mother of sons, the verses offered by writer/poet Ferrer touched me especially.
Lovely book to tuck into a special gift for a New Mom, Your own Mother or Grandmother, or to a friend who is also a mother of sons.
Enjoyed the read. I don't always keep the books I receive for review. A Mother of Sons: poems of love, wisdom & dreams is a book I will be keeping and reading again.
Happy to recommend.
