“I do not like this book! I didn't care for the art nor the sloppy, overly sentimental story. If I have been able to give it a half star, then I would have. The way the parent follows the child around as he grows up, oh please!!! Yuck, yuck, yuck!”see full review » see other reviews »
“In the book Love You Forever, it is a great representation of the process of development and the love between a caregiver and their child. According to McLaughlin (2011) adults not only teadh their children speech and language, but also teach through their facial expressions and vocal behaviors which is an important part of interaction. This is a very precious story for a parent to read too their child. The style of the story allows a student to be able to make meaningful interpretations of the text. It assists in expanding students knowledge and awareness of language. ”Venessa Stevens wrote this review 6 days ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

This is a story about a mother who holds her son every evening and sings to him that she'll love him forever. When the mother ages, the roles reverse and the son sings it to his mother. ”
“Summary: This is the story about the cycle of life and a mother who loves her son greatly. She rocks his son when he is asleep as a baby, as a child, as a teen, and even as a grown man. And when the mother is too old to rock her son, the son rocks her to sleep. Then the son goes into his own daughter’s room and rocks her to sleep singing the same song his mother has sung to him his whole life.
Review: This story is both heartwarming and sweet with a bit of subtle Robert Munsch humor embedded throughout the story. You can really feel how much the mother loves her son throughout the story and the song that the mother sings to her son melts every reader’s heart. It is evident that Robert Munsch still tries to get a rise out of his children readers as the old mother rocks her adult son to sleep in his bed. There is definitely something comical about a mother rocking a grown man to sleep.

Delicious quote: “I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as I'm living my baby you'll be.”
“This book is about a mother's love. It doesn't matter what her child does, she will love her baby forever. Roles reverse when the child is an adult and he sings this song to his elderly mother and then to his own child. ”Keely Thorn wrote this review Thursday, May 9, 2013.
