Nostalgic and poignant. This book is priceless. Highly recommended,

First off, I would like to express my congratulations to Karen on creating such a beautiful book, a gorgeous bedtime story. Also to Mary for the staggering illustrations, they are truly amazing.

My daughter sat up to look at this wonderful book as I sat reading it to her, she loved it so much that she grabbed it from me so she could turn the pages herself.

Such a warm and very emotional, touching story. Gives out the message to treasure every precious moment you have with your loved one, because nothing lasts forever. ( )

Let Me Hold You Longer is a realistic fiction book because the story that is desctibed is not a real story but represents situations that most families can relate to. Mothers can identify with watching a child grow out of infancy and toddler hood and remembering the last night in the crib and the last bottle pressed against their lips. The story is made up with imagnitive characters.
The illustrations in bring life to the words. The pictures help descibe the emotional feeling of the mom and give words to the child through their facial expression and actions. The illustrations catch the readers eye through the detail on each page. ( )
