-Love You Forever- by Robert Munsch-I got introduced to this book during my first couple of years teaching first grade. My first grade team and I would read this book to our first graders usually around Mother's Day. Before having my first son, I found it humorous, just as my students did. After I had Daniel, I remember reading it to my students and fighting back tears. If you have never read it, grab a copy!
