A Read this online article about Mother's Day. Then answer the questions below. (Pg 12)
Mums do a lot of hard work.
They cook and clean for us.
They also encourage us and give us support.
Mother's Day is the time for us to say "Thank you" to our mums.
In most countries, people celebrate Mother's Day on the second Sunday in May every year.
On this day, people like to buy flowers and make special Mother's Day cards for their mums.
Mother's Day is not only about gifts.
We can help our mums do the housework.
We can take them to the park or the cinema.
Sometimes a simple hug or saying "I love you, Mum" is the perfect gift for our mums.
Mother's Day is about love.
If you love your mum, why not plan a special Mother's Day for her?
