my mom read me that book when i was a baby and so did my grandma
i cried the first time i heard the story and am planning to give my mom one this Christmas.
i heard that robert munsch made this book as a gift for his mother..sweet..:)
I am very interested reading this book i think this boook belongs to my life also, so my dear my can u experience this book -walla-
i love this book! so much so that i plan to pass this book on to my future children (when i get to have a family in the future!)
My daughter gave this to me for my birthday a few years ago. It is very beautiful and I can't wait to have grandchildren to read it to. Wish I had it whem my own mother was still here.
Ok, I know a lot of people really love this book, but ugh, I just hate it. If my mom climbed into my 2nd floor window, I'd call the police. Flat out creepy, her driving over with the ladder like that. Call first before you come over for God's sake!
booksnake, I really love the book. I think the writer is just trying to express that there are no limits to a mothers love. Doylene
I admit that was weird. For a real life situation yeah I would have something done too! I think the author was trying to show that no matter what your mother loves you and no matter how old you get that does not change.
My kids and I adored this book when they were little. In fact, on my birthday card this year my 19-year-old wrote, "I'll Love You Forever!" I still get choked up thinking about it...
I have never been able to read the book without crying. I have it displayed in my room on a stand. Doylene
Awww now that is really sweet!
This is one of the best children's books I know of. I can't read it without getting misty, but I still read it to all three of my babies.
My mom read this book to my brother when he was a kid. I've always loved it & thought the old mom climbing in the window was kind of funny. It still makes me cry.
My mother and brother acted this out while I read it a few Mother's Day's ago. It has been a special book for us.
awwh... that is so sweet! my grandma gave me this book and she passed away recently so it is very special to me as well :)
I was introduced to this book at a meeting of children's librarians in Western Massachusetts, we were planning the summer reading program. I was completely taken by the story. I had 2 young sons at the time. I purchased one copy for the library and 2 copies for myself. Although I read aloud to my children all the time, I didn't read this one to them. When one of my sons had his own sons (I'm a grandmother of two boys now) I gave it to him. My other son is a bachelor but I may never have grandchildren from him so I gave it to him anyway. It is not a book you can read without tears in your eyes! I also think it is probably more a message for adults than for children.
I love this book... I love my son and my daughter loves her son's... it's truely a GREAT book... peace, dove
This book always symbolizes how a mother's love and concern never change towards her child even as they grow. It also symbolizes how the circle of life continues, as the son holds the mother at the end. It is a very endearing book.
This is defiantly a 5 "Kleenex" book. I have never been able to read this book without blubbering.
I love this book. I always cry when I read it. I read an article by Robert Munsch about this book when he lost his son and it just pricked my heart. The article also stated that the majority of people that purchase this book are people in the nursing homes. Wonder why?
My mother gave me this book on the day she donated a kidney to me. Now, she is getting older and I contemplate the day I may hold her in my arms.
