Enhance your purchase
A young woman holds her newborn son
And looks at him lovingly.
Softly she sings to him:
"I'll love you forever
I'll like you for always
As long as I'm living
My baby you'll be."
So begins the story that has touched the hearts of millions worldwide. Since publication in l986, Love You Forever has sold more than 30 million copies in paperback and the regular hardcover edition (as well as hundreds of thousands of copies in Spanish and French).

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
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

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

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Unfortunately, I ordered the hardcover version, but was sent the paperback instead.
This is a very nicely packaged gift set in a hard board sleeve.
It's so appropriate for me to give as a gift to my first grandchild.
