This touching book could bring anyone to tears because of how much it shows a mother's love for her child and once she passes, it shows a son's eternal love for his mother by singing the same song she always andg to him to his own child.

This is a book about the love a mother has for her child. The child gets into trouble and grows up as life goes on, but the mother will always love her child. ( )

This is a great children's book and really shows how much us kids mean to our parents. It is also a good example of a circle book where the mother always tells her son she loves him as he is sleeping and when she grows older, he does the same for her as what she did for him when he was a child. It would be a great bed time story for any child and I would read this in a classroom of 2nd or 3rd graders. ( )

This is a story about the strong bond between a mother and her son. We watch as the mother stays behind her son as he grows into a young boy, teenager, young man, and a father of his own. This is a great story about family and love.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0920668372, Paperback)

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
