Product description

From Amazon

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

Review

An extraordinarily different story by Robert Munsch is a gentle affirmation of the love a parent feels for their child -- forever. Sheila McGraw's soft and colorful pastels perfectly complement the sentiment of the book -- one that will be read repeatedly for years. ― NutSpace Published On: 2019-03-28

There's a reason why Love You Forever is still on the bestseller list 24 years after its release. -- Darcy Matheson ― Daily Hive Published On: 2019-04-26

There are certain books about a parent's unconditional love for a child that are timeless--and this is one of them. ― Baltimore's Child Published On: 2010-01-20

One of my all-time favorites. I cry every time I read it.... [The book] is a beautiful script about parenthood, a poignant parable about life and death, a testimony to when the roles of child and parent become blurry. The story reminds you that no matter how grown up you are, you're always someone's child; that no matter how "adult" you are, you're never too old to be loved by your parents. It makes me appreciate even more how my mother still calls me and my brother (despite us being 32- and 22-years-old, respectively) by our childhood nicknames, Pussycat and Tchotchke (Yiddish for "knickknack"). Pigeonholing this as a children's book is like saying "Romeo & Juliet" is merely a cautionary tale about drug abuse. I dare anyone to read this story and not shed at least one tear by the end. It's even more poignant when you learn that Munsch wrote the book as a memorial to two still-born children he and his wife had in 1979 and 1980. -- Dana Lenetz ― Forbes Published On: 2010-04-20

The one book that has the most meaning to me. -- David Maloof ― Boston Globe Published On: 2002-09-15

There is a powerful, age-old resonance to the story, centered on that intangible, steadfast bond between mother and child. -- Shelley Fralic ― National Post Published On: 2006-05-15

No one can read this without the tears falling. -- Sharon Owen ― Madera Tribune Published On: 2003-05-08

The best of Munsch's many storybooks... it'll give you a new song to sing... and maybe a bit of perspective down the road. -- Leanne Dohy ― Calgary Herald Published On: 2003-09-25

Sentimental story that has long been a favorite gift at baby showers. -- Karen T.Bilton ― Bridgewater Courier News Published On: 2005-04-26

A humorous, sentimental page-turner that rarely -- let's say never -- leaves a reader with a dry eye. -- Gayle MacDonald ― Globe and Mail Published On: 2005-12-01

My children and I enjoyed it, night after night, for years... It is a charmer. The simple story touches the heart. -- Jeith L. Runyon ― Louisville Courier-Journal Published On: 2005-11-13

#5 on Instructor's "Teachers Pick the Top 50 Kids Books Ever", chosen by 200 teachers, authors, and children's literature experts. ― Instructor Published On: 2006-11-01

Robert Munsch's beloved tale is gentle affirmation of the love a parent feels for her child -- forever. Nurtured by the unconditional love of his parent, a boy grows happily through the stages of childhood to become, in turn, a loving adult. ― BookPage Published On: 2008-01-04

This book is beyond emotional. I dare any mother out there, or any child with an aging parent, to read this story and not have a lump in your throat... Should definitely be apart of your child's book collection. ― community.cafelibri.com Published On: 2010-07-01

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic - Makes you Cry Every time
By Ryan on January 16, 2020
An incredible classic that will crush you every time you read it. If you’re trying to instill the sentiment that you will always love your little one through thick and thin while also making them wonder why mommy and daddy cry so much while reading a children’s book then this is the book for you.

Seriously though I think this book is a required addition to anyone’s library.

1.0 out of 5 stars Get this book out of my house ASAP
By Someone on September 30, 2020
This book is grossly unsettling. I started off reading it outloud to my daughter and had to stop once I got to the third page. The book gave me chills as if I was reading a curse outloud! Please pray for discernment parents, just because over 14 thousand ppl purchased this book DOES NOT MAKE IT A GOOD BOOK. The illustrations are so off to me. The mother creeps into the baby's room and stares at him wide eyed and does so again and again in every page. In one page it was 1:30 am and she just watched him sleep!!.... then we learn that the son uses bad words and drives his mom crazy but she loves him anyway, which is nice but its beginning to feel less and less age appropriate. The mother creeping into her older sons bedroom with a ladder nightly was ghastly... and when the son does the same to her we see i giant size framed picture of him as an infant in nothing but a diaper over her bed.
