Local books make great gifts for everyone on your list.


“The Color of Mother” by Chelsea Young

This beautifully illustrated hardcover picture book for kids doubles as a gift for moms to treasure as a keepsake. As a tribute to moms told through colors, “The Color of Mother” shows kids they are loved — while teaching them how to express what’s in their hearts — and acknowledges mothers and mother figures for who they are. This holiday season, a portion of proceeds from book sales will be donated to support victims of domestic violence at Sojourner Center.
