This is a sweet book. I may use it in kindergarten when we discuss growing up and growing old. ( )

“Love You Forever” is such a cute, yet sad children’s book. I like it because it sparks emotion and is generally about love. I like this book for younger children because although there is a decent amount of writing, the text is bigger and has a lot of white, open space around it. This book made me cry because of how emotional and sad it is. I also think the main idea is to teach the readers of growing up and how family will always be there. The mother watched the son grow up, while the son watched the mother grow up. They both took care of each other and loved each other unconditionally, and I think this is an important bond for all people to see. “I’ll love you forever, like you for always, as long as I am living, my baby you’ll be,” shows that no matter what, they will love each other. I think this book is adorable for all children and even adults to read.

This book brings back memories of when I read it as a child and how lovely it is. There is so much love between a mother and her child, and this book greatly portrays that. ( )

Unconditional love and care for a child teaches him how to love, how to love his parent in return, and how to love his own child.

Case in point:

My only criticism: When the mother visits her son's house in the middle of the night I expected an unknown, bleary-eyed woman screaming "Burglar!" lying next to him in bed. Possibly with smeared mascara and a strong whiff of tequila on her breath. Now that would've been realistic. And hilarious.

Thank you, Karen H., for recommending this heart-melting book to me. ( )

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
