This RF book is another one by my absolute favorite author, Robert Munsch. This book absolutely must be approached with caution when reading to children as it deals with the heavy themes of aging, illness, and death. This story follows a mother and son as they grow through their years and face many changes, although one thing remains constant for them: their love for each other #ucflae3414f19

JennaMichelleCohn Not-so-fun fact: Munsch wrote this book in honor of the two children they lost to miscarriages. https://www.teachingchildrenphilosophy.org/BookModule/LoveYouForever this website, along with https://www.edu.gov.mb.ca/k12/cur/physhlth/hs_k-8/gr2less3part1.pdf help educators teach students about the importance of love and kindness, as well as the harder things like death and loss. 3mo
JennaMichelleCohn To help guide along with the above sites, UDL 9.3, “Develop self-assessment and reflection,” works well here. ESOL strategy 42, “Have students use timelines to arrange and sequence important facts and information,” would be great here since the story takes place over roughly 50 or 60 years. This book would be great for RA or S. 3mo
YvetteE What a touching story and background. Thank you for sharing. 3mo

Lrobertson This is the book I remember my mother reading to me when I was little. I still cry every time I read it! 3mo
DrSpalding This is a wonderful book to read aloud around Mother‘s Day. It is also a great book to share with friends that have baby boys. If you are brave enough, sing the repetitive parts! This provides an engaging and interactive read aloud opportunity. 2mo

As I was looking through some of my Mum‘s boxes today I found this lovely book with a note attached to it. The note read “Now don‘t you wish you‘d let me teach you German?” 🤣She always liked having the last word! It was published in 1928.

rather_be_reading haha!! so cool to have a book in German! 5mo
Come-read-with-me @rather_be_reading Would be cooler if I could actually read it! 5mo

when the son ends up having his own child and singing the repeated song, “i‘ll love you forever. i‘ll like you for always. as long as i‘m living, my baby you‘ll be” it was super sweet and a good end to the story.

Love You Forever | Robert N Munsch

as I was reading this story I couldn‘t help but picture myself reading it to my own children one day. The mom really loves her son, and the son loves her back, and you can tell how special of a feeling it is by reading.

Love You Forever | Robert N Munsch

This is an adorable story of a little boy growing up. I remember reading it as a kid, and my parents remember it too. It was published in 1986, and is still being read often which I think is cool. It has a soothing song in it that repeats throughout the story- the mom sings it to him. Eventually the story progresses long enough to where the roles switch: mom is old and needs taken care of, son is now capable adult thanks to mom.

Last night my Mum passed away. She was the one who gave me the gift of books and love of reading. She helped me get a library card when I was 4, read to me everyday, and read with me as I grew older. Even as I mourn her passing I know that I will always find her in the pages of a book. Words she loved, stories that captured her, and characters that became her friends. I love you Mum ❤️❤️❤️

IamIamIam I'm so sorry for your loss, Paula. ❤ Know that her spirit will be between the pages of every book you read. Hugs to you and her friends and loved ones. 5mo

I was trying to think about what books inspired me. And two kept coming to my mind and both are children‘s books. Both about giving of ourselves to those we love.

Reading from a parental standpoint versus watching my children as they hear from theirs. Same story, different perspectives. Inspire all of us to do a little more for someone. 💗

Most of us know we'll have to take care of our parents one day, but we never know how hard it will be until we're in it. My mom had me young, so my grandmother always took care of us both. Now she's really sick, and we're taking care of her. Recently, as we sat with her between us, each rubbing her back, my mom quoted this book in a whisper. We both tried to hide our tears from her. We never grasped the gravity of this childhood classic until now.

ShyBookOwl @SW-T @Lauram Thank you. I live 2 hours away so the split is currently 80/20 on my mom. She's a rock star. But I'm hoping to bring it closer to 50/50 by moving them nearby. Hence the recent post about buying a new house. I'll be in the new one around the corner, and I'll be putting them in the old one. I want us all to be together again and to help out and much as I can. It's been so hard. 8mo

Love you Forever by Robert Munsch is a great book to read as a kid! I actually read this book EVERY night with my mom and it‘s my all time favorite childhood book. Every night before bed my mom and I would say to each other the “I‘ll love you forever” lines. This book is about the unconditional love between a boy and his mom no matter what. At the end of the book the roles have flipped as he rocks his old mother to sleep. Here is an interactive

taywise393 link that gives you a word search and a read aloud link. The read aloud link would work perfectly for ELL students Incase they don‘t understand the words in the book. This book received a Parents' Choice Gold Award. This aligns with ESOL strategies 16 and 17. Some UDL principles for this book are 2.5 and 1.1 because of the different displays. #LAE3414SP19 (edited) 11mo
audrey.wilson I read this book to one of the little boys I nanny and by the end of the book I was a puddle of tears! Great choice and I agree ESOL 16 and 17 align perfectly! 11mo
DrSpalding I‘ll love you forever I‘ll like you for always as long as I‘m living my baby you‘ll be. This has been committed to memory for at least 20 years. This book is a must read around Mother‘s Day in the elementary classroom. 11mo

The mom in this book took care of her little boy her whole life and then when he grew up and she got older he took care of her. This is a great book to read to little kids because this is real life testify that will happen to a lot of your students and sends a really good message to the kids.

I did my holiday baking today. My mom's spice bread recipe. She passed 5 years ago and it's only the 2nd holiday that I am baking something from her recipe book. I put my twist on it. Mimi loafs and mini bites with the left over batter. A bitter sweet memory since she's #goneaway. #winterwonderland

There are books that should come with a box of tissues and there are books where just one line makes me ugly cry. I often don't remember the latter ones.

Above are a few books that #MadeMeCry, for different reasons, obviously.

I think Kate Fulford's book made me cry with laughter at least once.

1) several at once! A home book & a travel book.
2) depends on how well written it is, but usually.
3) almost like a ghost, viewing the story without being a part of it.
4) I don‘t have any kids yet, but I have a laundry list of books. The tagged book, The Velveteen Rabbit, Harry Potter...

1. One fiction at a time. I lose focus whenever I read multiple stories at one time. Otherwise, if it's non-fiction I'm usually reading multiples at a time.
2. Definitely a movie
3. I include myself in the story as if I'm in the same room.
4. Love you forever (tagged). I used to read this to my daughter when she was little.

Love You Forever is a classic NF book written by Robert N. Munsch and illustrated by Sheila McGraw. The story is about a little boy that goes through childhood into manhood. With this book you will see that parents‘ love can travel through generations. UDL 3.2 and ESOL 4.

AmyPerezCubas If I read this in my classroom it would probably be around Mother‘s Day and we would do activities that have to do with the kids crafting something to take home! I would have them do cards with the special song from the story and have them draw a picture of their own family 2y

I know there‘s some debate over whether the mom in this book is creepy sneaking into her adult son‘s room but I love its depiction of mother/child love and the exaggeration is classic Munich. Plus the ending gets me every time. “I‘ll love you forever, I‘ll like you for always, as long you‘re living my baby you‘ll be.” This and cats cradle guaranteed to make me cry. #shelovesyou #heyjune

Love you forever is a NF book written by Robert N. Munsch and illustrated by Sheila McGraw. This is about a mother who sings to her son saying that as long as she‘s living, he will always be her baby. At the end of the story, the rolls are reversed and he is singing to her that he‘ll love her forever, he‘ll love her for always and as long as he‘s living his mommy she‘ll be!

JessicaC I would use this book as a RA to engage my students because of the singing and how sweet the book truly is. With this lesson plan, the students will be able to draw a picture of their own family and depict their relationship like this boy and his mother share their relationship. http://readingtokids.org/Books/BookView.php?bookID=00000411 The UDL I would use is 9.2 to facilitate personal coping skills. ⬇️ 2y
JessicaC The ESOL accommodations I would use are 14 and 17. 2y

Love You Forever by Robert Munsch is such a cute realistic fiction picture book that has won the Parents Choice Gold Award For it‘s story message. This book is about a young boy who‘s mother always sang to him, and then when she got sick, he sang to her. This book would work well as a read aloud and a choral read for the song.

NicoleCumbo A UDL strategy that aligns with this book is strategy 8.3 ( foster collaboration and community) and an EL strategy that works well with this book is strategy 11 (place language in meaningful context). Https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAXcIpoyBwI will bring you to an interactive read aloud that you can share with your classroom. #ucflae3414sp18 2y
ambera I love this book! It is so pure and I wish I have heard of it sooner! If I'm not mistaken, I believe Phoebe sings part of the song from this book in Friends. I know Joey reads it as a birthday present to Rachel and Ross's daughter (this is where I first found out about the book) 2y

Last year on Easter we officially announced the pregnancy of our sweet boy. Unfortunately pregnancy did not agree with me and he passed before birth at 25 weeks this past summer. I can‘t share on my regular social media bc it‘s still very raw for the people I love but this is the book I purchased as soon as I found out I was pregnant.

This is a book about a son and a mother. The mother sings a song to her son every night when her son falls asleep. Until she grows old and then the son sings to her. This book is a great book to read to students during Valentine's Day. This book teaches students about love and compassion. UDL strategy 3.1 works for this book along with Ell strategy 7. This is a great RA. This book has won Parents Choice gold award. #UCFLAE3414SP18

NicoleCumbo I used to read this book when I was younger. I think this is perfect for children because of the repetition in the story and for the message that it portrays. Thanks for the post! 😊 2y
DrSpalding I hope you enjoyed might read aloud of this particular favorite. Be sure to include a resource and to follow the essential elements outlined in the rubric. 2y

Love You Forever, by Robert Munsch is a heartwarming, RF book that will leave you feeling warm yet saddened for its realistic description of life. This book has won the Parents Choice Gold Award and was listed 4 times on the 2001 Publishers weekly All-time Best Selling Children‘s Books. Love you forever is a story about a mother‘s unconditional love for her son, through his journey from adolescence to adulthood.

Ryanne.H Every night she sings him a song, proclaiming “I‘ll love you forever”. As the boy grows older he in turn takes care of his mother and sings the same special song to her. 2y
Ryanne.H This book would be a great choice for a read-aloud as the variations between text and song allow great movement to keep children captured in the story. The UDL Principle 3.1 (Activate or supply background knowledge) relates to this story because most of your students can share a time a their parent(s) showed them affection, and made them feel loved. For EL 38 (assign short readings for homework) 2y
Ryanne.H Students could take home a printed copy of the book to read with their parent(s) and discuss what they learned from Love you Forever. 2y

DrSpalding I assume you enjoyed today‘s read aloud. Excellent choice. Be sure to use the abbreviations for the genres. Look for another ESOL strategy that might better align with this particular book and choice of teaching strategy. 2y
morganhillman Ahh I love this book so so much! It is so sweet and all people, regardless if they are children or adults, love it! I loved your idea on how the students can take home a copy and read it to their parents because I think it‘s great practice for the student and so cute for the parents! Great post!! 2y
JordanL I remember this book, being read in class. I really liked your UDL strategy, I didn't quite think about that (The way you supplied that background knowledge). Great review, I think it'll really help captivate your students with how powerful it is. 2y
Ryanne.H Update: An even better ESOL strategy would be #14 and you definitely need to sing the song in the book! 2y

Post 4/4 of my #throwbackreadathon TBR stack. I simply could not do this event without rereading some Robert Munsch 💙 I already know that I‘ll be crying through Love You Forever, but I can‘t wait. These beauties are going to be passed into my nephew after this readathon.

Guess a lot of you know this one. There was a time when I could recite it by heart.

#rockabye #decdays @Cinfhen

4thhouseontheleft For some reason, I have always hated that book, and found it kinda creepy. I know I‘m in the minority! When someone gifted it to my daughter, we passed it along to someone else. 😜 2y
julesG @4thhouseontheleft It's creepy when the old lady takes the ladder to go to her son's house. But I liked the whole idea behind the book. 2y
Jerdencon I can't get through it without choking up and generally sobbing. But I do agree part of it can be a little creepy. Id like to hope that I won't be climbing into my sons room when he is 30! Lol! 😀😂 (edited) 2y
Cinfhen Mixed feelings on this one too but the sentiment means EVERYTHING ❤️❤️ 2y

Realistic Fiction
This sweet book is about a little boy growing up and his mother‘s love never dwindles even as he becomes an adult. Once he becomes the father himself he falls into the same patterns of love for his own child as his mother did for him. This particular picture book was a gift from a very good friend whom showed me the love of a mother and how powerful that is. I am Grateful to her, forever.

jhudson I read this story to my son at least 3 times a week. My mom used to read it to my brother. I guess you could say it's a family tradition 🤗 2y
Racheal.Shi.Horton I love to read this book to my little boy. It's a great way to show people that there is always someone that cares about them. 2y

This book is a need for everyone that has a child or a classroom! It is such a sweet RF,RA or you could even be used for Storytelling it beautifully. This sweet book meets UDL 3.2 highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships as the relationship is the main idea in this heart warming book. It also meets EL 3 encourage self-talk by allowing children to talk about their parents!

Susancruz The link takes you to a website that gives a summary of the books as well as discussion questions you can ask children. https://www.teachingchildrenphilosophy.org/BookModule/LoveYouForever #ucflae3414f17 2y

The Parents Choice Gold Award “Love You Forver” by Robert Munsch and illustrated by Sheila McGraw will have everyone‘s hearts. This heartfelt NF picture book would be perfect for RA. It tells a story of a loving and growing relationship between a mother and her son. Sadly written after Munsch and his wife had two stillborn babies.

supan.katherine http://readingtokids.org/Books/BookView.php?bookID=00000411 This website includes before, during, and after discussion questions. As well as a fun craft for the students! 2y
supan.katherine UDL 9.2: Facilitate personal coping skills and strategies. ESOL 36: Ask numerous questions which require higher level thinking responses. #ucflae3414f17 2y
HNager I have read this book to my son a few times, we both love it. The website your EL goes perfect together. Awesome job! 2y
DrSpalding Resources that provide before, during and after read aloud strategies are helpful. This is truly a lovely story. A great read aloud on Mother's Day. 2y

Robert Munch stole the hearts of many for generations with his book “Love You Forever.” This picture book is a perfect read aloud and tells the heart warming story of the bond between a mother and son as thy both progress throughout life together. I️ would share this story with smaller age groups such as preschool to kindergarten. The website attached includes great teacher resources like lesson plans, worksheets, and vocabulary.

Jbombardiere https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Love-You-Forever-Activities-Lesson-P... . UDL principle 2.2 is fitting for this book due to its use of repetition and structure. For ESOL students, EL principle 15 would give them a better understanding of the meaning of the story because it reinforces key ideas again and again which is helpful for English learners. 2y
EveAstrouck Love you forever is a book I‘ve always had in my heart cannot wait to get my own copy for the classroom! 2y
DrSpalding We have two Robert Munsch glogs that you could utilize in your classroom to perform an author study and of course this book would make for an excellent read aloud during it. 2y

This RF PB would would make a perfect RA to your own children or students, it is a very sweet story about a mother‘s love for her child as he grows older. I would use the UDL guideline 3.2 by pointing out the repetition that occurs in the book. I would also use the ESOL strategy 14 and slow down my speech so that all learners can comprehend the text. The website provided will take you to a video that will read aloud the book and also show images.

Jaquessial This book is so good. I omg it too my little boy every night. Turns out I bought it twice. 2y
DominiqueL As I was doing Junior Achievement for my EDG 4410 class, I saw one of the students reading this book. It is great to see great books going beyond the discussions in class and actually being used. 2y

Brittanyradzak From reading the other comments, it seems like this is a really good book and a classic! I need to get this book for my classroom library! 2y
DrSpalding What an excellent choice! How neat to hear one of your peers state that they have recently seen a child reading this book. There are two glogs on the wiki for this well-known author. Use them. 2y

This little boy is a large part of why I haven‘t been as active on Litsy, the more active he gets... the more I have to chase him! We‘ve figured out the stairs, well going up them, so gate installation is happening TONIGHT! I can‘t believe he will be 1 year in less than a month 😭😭😭 where did that year go?!

mrsmarch Oh yes THE STAIRS!! We have a “baby baffle” at the bottom of ours. Good luck 🍀 mama! 2y
