April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Moms influence. Moms read books. Some moms blog about it. In the May issue of
Books Make A Difference magazine, mom bloggers will have a thing or two to say about how blogs and books have made a difference in their lives.
In honor of
Mother's Day, the online magazine
www.BooksMakeADifference.com will feature mom bloggers in its Turn the Page column. The blog-style article, with contributions from four different blogging moms, will be the jump-off point for an extensive blog-hopping conversation. Influential mom bloggers will be linking into the magazine column with blog posts of their own.
"Our magazine appeals to a wide variety of book lovers – readers, creators, and book industry folks," says senior writer
Meagan Frank. "Moms have a big voice in today's book conversation. Some bloggers are busy writing the stories of their families while others blog about why they choose and read the books they do. This is our way of celebrating the difference moms are making."
The free online bimonthly magazine takes readers behind the scenes with both well-known and unknown authors, illustrators, and community organizations, to celebrate the impact of books. "We get to peek inside at why books matter to the people responsible for making them happen," says Frank.
Headlining the May issue is the highly-acclaimed husband-wife team
David Small and
Sarah Stewart (
The Quiet Place). Past issues have featured artist

Jeff Kinney (
