Details: Product Description A young woman holds her newborn sonAnd looks at him lovingly. Softly she sings to him: "I'll love you forever I'll like you for always As long as I'm living My baby you'll be." So begins the story that has touched the hearts of millions worldwide. Since publication in l986, Love You Forever has sold more than 15 million copies in paperback and the regular hardcover edition (as well as hundreds of thousands of copies in Spanish and French) Amazon.com Review The mother sings to her sleeping baby: "I'll love you forever / I'll love you for always / As long as I'm living / My baby you'll be." She still sings the same song when her baby has turned into a fractious 2-year-old, a slovenly 9-year-old, and then a raucous teen. So far so ordinary--but this is one persistent lady. When her son grows up and leaves home, she takes to driving across town with a ladder on the car roof, climbing through her grown son's window, and rocking the sleeping man in the same way. Then, inevitably, the day comes when she's too old and sick to hold him, and the roles are at last reversed. Each stage is illustrated by one of Sheila McGraw's comic and yet poignant pastels. (Ages 4 to 8) --Richard Farr Review An extraordinarily different story by Robert Munsch is a gentle affirmation of the love a parent feels for their child -- forever. Sheila McGraw's soft and colorful pastels perfectly complement the sentiment of the book -- one that will be read repeatedly for years. ― NutSpace Published On: 2019-03-28 There's a reason why Love You Forever is still on the bestseller list 24 years after its release. -- Darcy Matheson ― Daily Hive Published On: 2019-04-26 An extraordinarily different story by Robert Munsch is a gentle affirmation of the love a parent feels for their child--forever. Sheila McGraw's soft and colorful pastels perfectly complement the sentiment of the book--one that will be read repeatedly for years. ― Book Fairies Vancouver Published On: 2019-04-08 There are certain books about a parent's unconditional love for a child that are timeless--and this is one of them. ― Baltimore's Child Published On: 2010-01-20 One of my all-time favorites. I cry every time I read it.... [The book] is a beautiful script about parenthood, a poignant parable about life and death, a testimony to when the roles of child and parent become blurry. The story reminds you that no matter how grown up you are, you're always someone's child; that no matter how "adult" you are, you're never too old to be loved by your parents. It makes me appreciate even more how my mother still calls me and my brother (despite us being 32- and 22-years-old, respectively) by our childhood nicknames, Pussycat and Tchotchke (Yiddish for "knickknack"). Pigeonholing this as a children's book is like saying "Romeo & Juliet" is merely a cautionary tale about drug abuse. I dare anyone to read this story and not shed at least one tear by the end. It's even more poignant when you learn that Munsch wrote the book as a memorial to two still-born children he and his wife had in 1979 and 1980. -- Dana Lenetz ― Forbes Published On: 2010-04-20 The one book that has the most meaning to me. -- David Maloof ― Boston Globe Published On: 2002-09-15 There is a powerful, age-old resonance to the story, centered on that intangible, steadfast bond between mother and child. -- Shelley Fralic ― National Post Published On: 2006-05-15 No one can read this without the tears falling. -- Sharon Owen ― Madera Tribune Published On: 2003-05-08 The best of Munsch's many storybooks... it'll give you a new song to sing... and maybe a bit of perspective down the road. -- Leanne Dohy ― Calgary Herald Published On: 2003-09-25 Sentimental story that has long been a favorite gift at baby showers. -- Karen T.Bilton ― Bridgewater Courier News Published On: 2005-04-26 A humorous, sentimental page-turner that rarely -- let's say never -- leaves a reader with a dry eye. -
