Photographer Bob Elsdale and author Patrick Regan team up to offer more than 40 reasons to pay tribute to motherhood: From her role of nurturer, teacher, and cheerleader to stepping back and watching her efforts take flight, Elsdale(1)s photographic spreads of feathery fledgling chicks are perfectly paired with Regan's heartfelt verse: Whenever I lost my way and my feathers were ruffled, you were there to smooth them. With every loving act and patient lesson, you prepared me for my life ahead. I know I(1)ve still got a lot to learn about life, but I do know one thing for sure . . . I(1)m a lucky duck to have a mum like you.
BOB ELSDALE's awards include international photography awards, Communication Arts, PDN Photoraphy Annual, PDN Pix Digital, AOP, The UK Association of Photographers, and the Hasselblad Super Circuit.
