LIFE with Mother will charm thousands of readers, bring smiles to thousands of faces--and elicit more than a few tears. It did when it was first published in 1995, and this collection of warm, often funny, always resonant photographs will do so again.
LIFE`s editors have re-visited and updated more than half of the book, refreshed the photography with new material (including more full-color pictures), enlivened the design and added not only new photos but also text and quotations that set the proper home-and-hearth tone then carry it straight through the book. The best "Mom" images from LIFE`s storied pictorial archive are here, as are disarming shots taken by the man in the street. The book represents a tribute to the bond each of us shares with our mothers, and also serves as an inspiration. It urges us to remember the best of times, the golden moments. It spurs us to remember the love.
