Author Spotlight: Robert Munsch

by: Mrs. Schoolbus When I used to teach first grade, one of my favorite authors was Robert Munsch. We all know and love his classic Love You Forever. Who hasn’t shed a few tears after reading that one?! That book tugs at your heart strings, but I love all his books that tickle your funny […]
