Reviews - What do customers think about Love You Forever?
A generational favorite in our family and among friends Dec 9, 2008
It is a very special book that talks about unconditional love. My children never grew tired of reading it and still talk about it. It's a great gift for a new mom. If you read the author's online bio, you will learn that he wrote as a memorial to the two stillborn babies they had. Mr. Munsch goes on to say the story actually started out as a song.
Creepy to say the least, do not buy Sep 30, 2008
This book made the hackles on my neck stand straight up. Absolutely creepy and odd. It is one thing to rock your sleeping baby, quite another to sneak in your grown sons house (with a ladder no less), and rock him in his bed. This book shows the exact opposite of how to be a healthy parent. Cut the creepy apron strings. DO NOT BUY !!!
Hate to have to give it even one star... Sep 29, 2008
Maybe a million Elvis fans can't be wrong but a million "Love You Forever" fans certainly can be. ...disturbing parts in this story, spend your $10 on a myriad of better childrens books...
A touching book Sep 23, 2008
I gave this book to my son when he turned forty. He called me and told me how much it meant to him and how it made him cry. My son is a 6'3 Army Ranger Instructor and very few things have made him cry., trust me. I heard this book the first time when in church, our preacher pulled up a rocking chair on Mother's day and read it to us. I knew I had to have it. I hope all of you who read it are touched by a mothers love. Susie
Love you forever Sep 19, 2008
It's a wonderful book to give to someone who has lost their parent(s). It is a metaphor for the generations
Far Too Depressing for a Child Sep 17, 2008
While this book has a "sweet" premise of the circle of life, I think it is a book for an adult written as if it were a children's book. I was balling by the end of it. It is very depressing to see the man rock his dying mother. Our son was given this book as a gift and I will not keep it in his library. I think that if I actually read it to him, it would make him depressed and would conjure up ideas of his parents mortality long before he needs to think about that. I especially would not read this to a child before bed.
