Ce dimanche, c’est la fete des meres en Irlande. (Vous avez remarque aussi.  Ils fetent tout en avance les Irlandais !).

A cette occasion, j’ai relu ce livre “La premiere fois que je suis nee” que j’ai achete il y a quelques mois. Il est trop bien ! C’est un livre emouvant qui parle du cycle de la vie, de ses petits bonheurs et des premieres fois avec beaucoup d’humour, de tendresse et de subtilite.

La premiere fois que je l’ai lu, j’ai eu la larme a l’oeil, et les autres fois aussi d’ailleurs !

Bonne fete a toutes les mamans !

La premiere fois que je suis nee, Charles Dutertre et Vincent Cuvelier, Editions Gallimard Jeunesse

The first time I opened my eyes, I closed them right away. I cried. Some hands lifted me up in the sky and then put me down between two mountains of milk. I stopped crying. Then I opened my eyes for the second time of my life. I saw the most gentle light of the world: it was my Mom’s eyes!

This Sunday, it’s Mothers’ Day in Ireland ! (Did you notice it too? The Irish celebrate everything earlier !)

I’ve just reread a French book I bought a few months ago “La premiere fois que je suis nee” (the first time I was born). I heart this book! It is a moving book which talks about the cycle of life, its little moments of happiness and the first times with humour, affection and subtlety.

The first time I read it, I was teary-eyed, besides the other times too!

Happy mothers’ day!
