Love You Forever by Robert Munsch. If you want make a group of grown-ups sob like abandoned babies, just read this story to them. Read the book (w/o pics) at **I wish the book had a different cover. I thought it was about potty training until I read it.**
a must read for anyone in the field of foster care, adoption, work with traumatized children. fantastic information about how trauma impacts brain development, AND how to help. besides that, it's just an interesting read for anyone, i'd say.
great book.. it’s a story about the dangers of authoritarian states, drawing parallels with Communism, but if you reread it today there is resonance. For example, Orwell talks about the perpetual war that exists between these three super-states and which drives the economy – that tallies with the long war against Islamo-fascism that the War on Terror became.
