Conveying the overwhelming love of a parent for a child, each page offers a short expression complemented by a lovely, double-page illustration. As the pages turn, taking readers from the birth of a much-loved child through the joys and sorrows of growing up to the ultimate wish each parent has for a child.

A book to be read again and again, a book to be treasured by young and old alike.

Highly recommended. ( )

A loving, beautiful book about family and growing up; about how family will always be there for you. A very sweet, emotional read, I felt a tear roll down my cheek as I read the story to my active baby. The only thing I would have wished for would be brighter pictures. The beautiful watercolors were more muted than some of our other favorite books, making this a good library book, but not one for the home collection. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0439434203, Hardcover)

A book that combines the spiritual (and artistic) appeal of Jon Muth's THE THREE QUESTIONS with the heartfelt emotion of LOVE YOU FOREVER.

Here is the rare book that not only expresses a parent's love for their child, but offers a hope for what that love will become. It begins with a wish at bedtime, as parents hold their children tight and hope their love will cradle them, safe and sound. It continues through the day their children have grown up, proud and strong, and can pass that love on to someone else. This is a book that goes beyond a parent's "I love you" to the generous wish that our children will make the world a better place.

A parent expresses undying love for a child.
