This is a keeper Mar 22, 2007
This is a book that will withstand all time. This was one of my favorite books to read to my son when he was just a baby. He's now 24. I purchased another copy as a gift for my 9 month old newphew. It's a wonderful way of telling your son that you love him forever unconditionally. It's a must have or must give book for all babies.
Maudlin, skip it Mar 14, 2007
This book was very disappointing, and quite frankly depressing for a new mother. My least favorite part was when the mother told the son you had better get here quick, and the image of him rocking what may be a dying mother was a little too much. There are sentimental stories, but this is just plain maudlin.
I love it. Mar 13, 2007
A very moving book. It reminds me of an onion, in that, as a child grows up, they can reread the story, and come away with a different perspective every time. Right now, my 4 year old thinks it's a story about a naughty boy whose mommy still loves him, even though he is bad. Later she will understand the ideas of unconditional love, the cycles of life, mother/child bonds, etc.
I believe that those people who called it creepy read the book more literally than was intended. I hope we can all agree that it is a bad idea to climb into the window of a house that does not belong to you in the dead of night...um, right? (Gosh, I hope my mother in law is reading this!)
Just kidding mom!
Seriously, this is not a silly story, and not even a simple story, but it is a good story. I would read it yourself first, to anticipate any of the tough questions your kids might have for you...it is definitely thought-provoking.
A Classic Story Mar 12, 2007
A story that holds it's own throughout generations. It tells of a mother's love for her son, as he grows and changes. A great reminder to all parents to cherish the time we have with our little ones.
Love you Forever Mar 10, 2007
I received this book over 12 years ago when I had my son. To this day, I cannot read it without bawling my eyes out. It is just about the sweetest story I have ever read. I am buying it for a very close friend who is having her first child very soon.
