Can it be dative and be translated as did you explain the book to your mother? ?

Not quite. You need the mandatory unstressed form, so that would be "I-ai explicat cartea mamei tale?".

Just FYI, I'm just learning Romanian and also confused with this sentence. DL considers "Did you explain the book to your mother?" as a right translation.

Perhaps "Did you explain your mother's book" (the book of your mother)? It would certainly sound more natural.
