I bought this book when my sons where young and we loved it but it nearly a l ways m are me cry. My son's are grown now, the eldest 32, however he and I have had s strained relationship for a while for reasons that are not I'mportant. Today, I sent him a text, to try and express the unconditional love a mother feels and found myself quoting from this book, with tears streaming down my face. So thank you Amazon prime, I have found the book, cried a fresh while orderingand a copy for my son - which will be with him tomorrow. No response to my text yet, but I hope it will touch his heart

Ok was it just me or is this book just way too weird?? The creepy illustrations of the mom crawling into the bedroom then driving to rock a grown man to sleep... uhmmm sorry no. I didn’t even bother returning it, I just threw it in the trash.

My gerontology professor in graduate school read Love You Forever to our class one evening. My tears started to flow. Listening to this charming and lovely story was a very emotional experience. A memorable experience that remains with me. This morning, a friend on social media asked for assistance in recommending favorite books for children. Immediately my thoughts went to Love You Forever. The truth is, this book is highly recommended reading for babies, young children, tweens, teens and adults of all ages. It is one of the most beautiful, sentimental, and empathetic written books of all time. I discovered myself and my mother in each word. It was as though the author knew my personal story. It's a universal story, reaching across all cultures, ethnicities, ages and genders. A mother held her new baby and v very slowly rocked him back and forth, And while she held him, she sang: I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, As long as I'm living my baby you'll be. On the last day of class my gerontology professor gave each student a copy of Love You Ever. It has a cherished place in my home library. The great news is Love You Forever can be purchased on Amazon.
