Mother's Mother's Day
Six generations of female mice celebrate Mother's Mother's Day by Lorna Balian (1982) in a gifty hand-size volume. Hazel brings a bunch of violets to her mother, who is not home because she is delivering a gift to her own mother, also not at home. This continues until Great-Great-Grandmother finds an unfriendly cat instead of her own mother, sending all the mice scurrying into hiding together. Balian's delicate, cozy illustrations ably capture the characters' emotions.
