On Valentine’s Day, we celebrated a love for literacy.
The Literacy Unlimited LOVE Book Shelf
Robert Munsch: Love You Forever
“The first book that I think of is “Love You Forever” by Robert Munsch. I have gifted this book to so many friends with newborns. It is about the love parents have for their child and the child for their parents.”
Sandra Boynton: Snuggle Puppy, a Little Love Song
Bernadette Rossetti-Shustak: I Love you Through and Through
“Read this one over, and over, and over, and over in our house.”
Oge Mora: Thank You Omu!
Khalil Gibran: The Prophet
“Probably my #1 for everything since I’m 19.”
Mem For and Julie Vivas: Wilfred Gordon Mcdonald Partridge
“It’s wonderful. A small boy helps the seniors in a residence remember their favorite things! If you are a teacher, this book has a lot of discussion and activity ideas to go with after reading it with a group.”
Suzanne Kamata: Bake Sale
“We’re partial to our first HiLo romance Bake Sale by Suzanne Kamata. We just realized a free accompanying lesson plan for adult literacy classrooms today.”
Anthony Doerr: Cloud Cuckoo Land
Anne Tyler: French Braid
Min Jin Lee: Pachinko
Joanna Goodman: The Home for Unwanted Girls

A gift for you – a Literacy Unlimited Poem
Every month, Literacy Unlimited learners and volunteers can post a message on our electronic message board. For Valentine’s Day this month, we asked our members to tell us about something they LOVE! We used their entries to write a Love Poem.
And speaking of love…
