Former First Lady of the United States Barbara Bush and her daughter, Doro Bush Koch, posted a special Mother's Day message of hope to the Barbara Bush Foundation's Facebook page.

In the heartfelt video, Barbara reveals that her hope for every mom around the world on Mother's Day is peace.

"Even more than that, I would hope every mother would read to their child, starting early and often. And fathers too," Barbara said. "So happy Mother's Day."

"I have such fond memories of my mom reading Winnie the Pooh to me before bedtime," Doro said.

She invited people to visit www.HelpThemRead.org to honor your mother and to help promote family literacy.
