Love You Forever by Robert N. Munsch, Sheila McGraw
A young woman holds her newborn son
And looks at him lovingly.
Softly she sings to him:
"I'll love you forever
I'll like you for always
As long as I'm living
My baby you'll be"
So begins the story that has touched the hearts of millions
of Americans. The book makes a great play for Mother's Day. Have each
student in the class illustrate a page of the book. Create a sentence
strip for each illustration and attach to the back of the drawing. Invite
Mothers to the classroom to share the story with the class as each student
stands to read their part while displaying their illustration (have students
sit in sentence strip order of the book).
in l986, "Love
You Forever" has
sold more than 15 million copies in paperback and the regular hardcover
edition (as well as hundreds of thousands of copies in Spanish and French).
