Tissue? Feb 7, 2007
Get your tissues ready before you sit down with this book! If you are a mother you won't be able to keep a dry eye. Very touching & so true. Knowing the situation in the Baxter family at the time makes it even more emotional. Wonderful, simple book!
Let Me Hold You Longer Jan 12, 2007
I know this book is for children but this is a book that every mother should own. It's great at grabbing you by the heart and making you cry like a baby. It really makes you think about the little things that your children do that you will miss when they are grown. This book is outstanding!

Let me hold you longer Nov 10, 2006
I love Karen Kingsbury but I did not care for this book. For one thing I bought it for my grandaughter and it seemed to be geared more towards a boy, which needs to be expressed. I was disappointed in this one.
Let Me hold You Longer Aug 18, 2006
I LOVED this book, this is a heart touching story, and would be an excellent gift for a baby shower, or even as a gift for a parent who has a child graduating. I highly reccommend this book!
