Reviews - What do customers think about Love You Forever?

Grear book!!  Jun 11, 2008
I really think that people are over analyzing this book. It's a sweet book and it's meant for children. Yes, a little dramatized but all children books are. I mean, we read to them about animals and monsters. My mom read it to me and now I read it to my son. Nothing creepy unless you make out to be. I love this book but if you don't, just don't read it. No need for harsh criticism!!
Great Mother's Day Gift  Jun 5, 2008
Got tissue? You'll need it for this cute and touching little book. I bought it for my mom and my wife for Mother's Day. They both enjoyed it (they both cried, too!).
Great Book for Adults and Children  Jun 5, 2008
This is a book I've had for years. I first heard it read aloud in a school faculty meeting, and tears were flowing. It was meant to show the teachers how much every child means to their parents. I have since read this book to preschool grandchildren; they, surprisingly, did not miss the meaning. They enjoyed the messes the kid made, too! I continue to order this book for friends as a gift to remind them of the legacies that we leave with our children. They truly learn what they live! I ordered this one for new parents of a nephew. It's a great shower gift for a baby.
This Book Taught Me A Lesson!  May 29, 2008
The lesson is to prescreen any children's book prior to reading it to my grandchildren. No matter who it comes from. As this came from a good friend who I thought was reasonably intact upstairs. From first opening the package, I wasn't certain what I would think. I love a beautifully illustrated children's book. This is far from beautifully illustrated, even prior to reaching the ick factor.
The song the mother sings is very sweet and certainly a testimony to love. Had I sung that to my babies and they had loved it, I would not hesitate to sing it to them as they were older or include the lyrics in a card or letter.
In spite of my disatisfaction with the cover and because my friend had raved about the book so much, I eagerly placed my grandson in my lap and rocked him as I read. I stopped and said "the end" as I reached the rather perverse page depicting the mother crawling across the floor to her sleeping teenage son's bed, staring at him and then lifting him into her lap. When I finished looking through the book later, I pondered what my own three grown sons reaction would have been to waking up to that in the dead of night as teens. When I got to the part of her taking a ladder across town to climb up his house and crawl through his window in the dead of night, I pondered my husband doing that to our two grown daughters. Explain that one to a passing law enforcement officer. Although as a middle aged woman myself, I must admire the strength the mom possesses. I would not be capable of lifting my adult sons into my lap without waking them.
I realize the intent of this book is to be a shining example of the unconditional love of a mother and child through the years. Surely there is a way to communicate that without being perverse. Considering the author is a man, I worry for his mother to son relationship growing up. It's amazing what one can think is normal if it's all they ever knew.
My Mother read this book to me as a child  May 28, 2008
I wanted to share my experience with this book since I noticed many people stating that they thought this book was *creepy* and inappropriate for children.

My mom used to read this book to me when I was a child and I loved it. The part that I loved the best was short poem that is repeated. As a child I even began repeating the poem to my cat, whom I loved deeply. I was never creeped out by the book, nor did it leave me with any childhood trauma.

When I became a parent I purchased the book for my son. I am glad to be able to share this book with him as my mother shared it with me. And now that I am pregnant with my second child I will be purchasing a book for her as well.

I think this book is a lovely story about the love of a mother (and later on father) towards her child. You must not over-analyze the book or view it from an adult's point of view (honestly, if you analyzed Green Eggs and Ham the same way it would be seen as creepy as well). If you view this book as it is, a children's book, you will see the love and beauty of it.
