Love You Forever

It's Mother's Day today and I am reminded of Robert Munsch's book, Love You Forever, as a fitting read for moms and children on this special day.

I first read the book years ago when I was teaching preschool. I cried because I was touched by the song's message of enduring love. I was single then and motherhood was a far fetched dream. Nonetheless, I knew how much love and sacrifice my own mother, in her own unique way, has made for me.

A few years after, I would buy the book as part of the library's collection. When I recommended the book to teachers, they too were touched. I have read the book to my kids. I have shared the book to my students and children in many storytelling sessions. The other day, I read aloud Munsch's masterpiece to the participants of my bibliotherapy workshop at the SAS-Petron Gurong Kaakbay Conference. It had been a love fest.

Thank you Robert Munsch for writing the book, Love You Forever. It perfectly shows a   parent's unconditional love to his or her children. To all the mothers out there, Happy Mother's Day.

I too love this book. First heard of it from Prof. Ross Alonzo. I don't know how the book was related to our topic that day (EDL class) but I thank God that she did read and sing it to us grown-ups.
