A collection of essays on motherhood and life on a farm, Growing Girls was a great read--even if it was a slow start. Laskas has a way of describing the trials of motherhood that makes them both poignant and inconsequential at the same time. We can identify with the struggles of trying to get parenting "right" but at the same time realize that her love of her children trumps any mistakes she might make in decorating the valentine's cards or forgetting to bring the class game on party day. And if her love trumps her mistakes, so can ours for our own children.
