The story is about Stephanie whose friends, and even teachers start copying how she wears her ponytail.
She moves it to the side, to the top of her head even right in front of her face and they keep copying her. So she outsmarts them all with shocking results. The message though is about being your own person, a powerful one for kids today. However, I think not only is it justified, he treated her horribly. But people say things when they are angry and you can easily use it to teach your child about anger.
My kind of fairytale. There is no long explanation about why she has a wheelchair, nothing preachy about children with disabilities. I love those books. And I have 2 small boys and I "try" to read the first one and end up crying half way through and they are so sweet because they don't say anything they just listen quietly through my tears.

I haven't made it through once without tearing up! You gotta love a Mom's heart. Thanks for the recommendation on the others. Some I hadn't seen.
No Time for Tears
Blessings, Kim. We love Robert Munsch too.
We have had that book here for years now. My eldest is 14 years old and he remembers me reading to him and his siblings…. Big Robert Munsch fans here.
Author Showcase – Robert Munsch
We also love "Alligator Baby". When I was pregnant last summer my daughter was VERY concerned that I would go to the zoo instead of the hospital to give birth. I managed to reassure her. I always loved Moira's birthday.
Early Education and Creative Play
I am so glad my love of Munsch is shared! I started reading his books when I was babysitting at age I am still in shock I babysat at that age but I had a little bag filled with crafts, activities and Munsch books I'd take with me for the kids to do. I wish I could read Love you Forever, but I just can not.
The boys said, "Mom, what's wrong? I said, "We have to pick another book. Maybe I should try some of the others?
I love that Robert Munch's website has free audio stories! A lifesaver on long car trips.
No time for mess book
I loved his books when I was in elementary school, and I always hoped he would visit our school! She has them practically memorized!
Such A Mess - "Times Like These"
I was sad to hear that Robert Munsch had a stroke last year. Did you know that "I'll Love You Forever" was written for Robert's wife after she suffered multiple miscarriages? His web site is awesome, it has stories to download in case you want to listen to them in the car , unpublished stories and tons of photos.
Love You Forever is just amazing, and I can't help but tear up every single I read it! Have you read the book Someday, which is similar to this book? I don't remember the author, but I cry every single time I read that book.
I bought it because it's sooo good. I have read all of Robert Munichs creations. Most I have memorized.
There has never been an author before who has been able to capture the true essence of childhood. Robert Munsch has been one of my all time favorite authors for as long as I can remember. The way he is able to showcase and appreciate the world through the eyes of children is remarkable. I have yet to come across a book by him I have not fallen in love with.

Love You Forever by Robert Munsch is perhaps the classic tear-jerking picture book. I read this for years and years to children and had no problem getting choked up, it never bothered me. The premise is simple. For days after I read this, I tear up as I lay my son in his crib. Makeup Mess by Robert Munsch.
Mess: The Manual of Accidents and Mistakes
After seeing my son covered in paint, this book immediately came to mind. Luckily Moira does. This book at first look may seem like Moira is a spoiled brat who gets her way. In the book, a little girl finds a baby and quickly decides she needs to give it to an adult.
