Written by Alison Meghee, Illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds
Curriculum Connections: aging of a parent, circle of life, maternal love
Teacher-Librarian Note: This is a simply-written, beautiful tale of the love of a mother for her small child, however adults should be aware that the story arc extends to imagining that child as an old woman herself, remembering her mother. Death of a parent is implied but not spelled-out. It's like a better-written, less cringey "Love You Forever!" ;)
Format: hardcover picture book, small format
Condition: all our secondhand books have been judged to be in very-good used condition
Rebecca's Picks: The Tiny Toy Co. booklist is selectively curated by elementary teacher-librarian and Tiny Toy Co. educational director, Rebecca Saha. Selection priorities include: literary excellence in writing and/or illustration, diversity & representation, social and environmental justice, social-emotional literacy, and educational value. If Rebecca chose it, it's worth adding to your classroom or home library!
