This is a great story. The storyline is decodable and predictable, and a great story to get a childs attention. For my kindergarteners, I love the story because it teaches them about change. Some of my students believe they will be five years old forever. What a great attitude. You can use this concept of change, and bring it into the concept of time, days of the week, months of the year, seasons, and themselves- "All About Me." This book was given to my son on his first birthday by my mother, so, I was pretty choked up when I read it. I was ready for the tears when Dr. Jeff Lee had a student in our Education Technology class read it to us. Since I know more about his connection with you, Mr. Munsch, the story is now a part of my life. I will now be closer to "Love You Forever" than I had been. Thank you for your gift to education and the heart. Bruce Ridill

This book was given to me by my mother when I had a house-full of 4 children under the age of 4. I was busy, and set it aside for a day or two, until she said, " Read the book today, then call me." I read it, called her, and was told that she had terminal lung cancer. This book was the only way my mother could tell me how she felt about me. She was never one to be open about her feelings, and I honestly cannot remember her telling me she loved me, until the last 6 months of her life. By then I was over 35, and she started with this book.
I would recommend this book for any age, any gender. The love it speaks of is one we all need to remember, and share with those close to us, even if we have to do it by sharing this book.
Yes, there are a couple of extremes...climbing in her grown son's window?....but the message is one of importance. Read it.

"Love You Forever" is a story about a mother and her child. Throughout the story, it tells about how her child grows up and changes during his life. In the book, it tells how no matter what her child is like, she will always love him. At night she sometimes creeps into his bedroom and sings "I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as I'm living my baby you'll be. After doing this for many years, she gets old and sick, so her son comes to her house and sings it to her. Then he takes up the tradition and starts singing it to his newborn child.
I think this is a pretty good book because even though it is a bit repetitive and can get a bit boring it gets across a pretty good point. It shows the love that is between a mother and her son. It shows the devotion to each other that each of them has.

Do you know how much your parents love you? Now that I am a parent, I can understand a little more about parents' unconditional love toward their children. If you have never read Love You Forever by Robert Munsch, you must read it!
I recommend it to any child who doubt, if at all, their parents' love. You may want to read it if you want to remind yourself of their love. Now, if you are a parent who is burnt out by your ever-changing children, reward yourself by reading this book.
This is one of the books that will bring tears to your eyes. Another book I would recommend is The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn. This is a book about sending your child to school for the first time. You'll love this book if you liked Love You Forever!

I think this is a lovely sentiment expressed in a way children can relate to and will remember. I was a little surprised at some of the reviews I read,as I bought my copy in the UK and there is no ladder in the middle of the night and no rocking a grown man in his sleep-the 2 aspects most people seem to have objected to.
Maybe as a result of the weird world we live in, publishers have acknowledged the interpretations some people seem unable to get past and have made some slight modifications. The illustrations also differ-but the important aspect, the beautiful timeless story of the cycle of unconditional love-is as clear and moving as ever.

I recently flew my two-year old nephew back East (as his parents drove) and picked this book out of the backpack my sister prepared for him. I was surprised to see that he knew the words - the rhyming is very nice - and ultimately how the book impacted me. I don't have children, but know now that I yearn for the love between a parent and a child. Reading the book to my nephew - with him curled in my lap at 30,000 feet - I knew then and there that I can't wait to be a mother. The most impressive part...he'll walk around the house chanting "I love you forever/I'll like you for always/As long as I'm living/My baby you'll be."

I thought this book was great to teach children about loss and the love of a mother to her child and I would recommend it to teachers. It seemed to conjure up deep emotions from many of its readers and listeners due to the sensitive subject of death. The content is good for third grade and up, however, second grade might be able to grasp the concept of loss. I Love You Forever is definitely NOT for kinder and first. I would compare this book to My Friend Rusty. This book is also about the loss of life except it deals with losing a friend rather than a mother. Make sure you have a box of tissue when you read this one!!!

WELL, I THOUGHT THIS WAS A GREAT BOOK, BUT AS I CAN SEE FROM SOME OF THE OTHER REVIEWS,SOME DIDNT! I, TO AM REALLY CURIOUS AS TO WHY THE REACTIONS TO THIS STORY ARE SO EXTREME?? MY BOYFRIEND AND I WERE BORED ONE NIGHT AND WENT TO THE BOOK STORE AND I MADE HIM READ IT. HE HATED IT AND SAID IT WAS FREAKY. I, ON THE OTHER HAND, LOVE IT AND SO DOES MY NIECE. I GUESS IT DEPENDS ON THE WAY U LOOK AT IT...I ONLY SEE THE MOTHER DOING THESE THINGS AS A SYMBOL OF LOVE, NOT TO PUSH MOTHERS TO ACTUALLY HAUL UP A LADDER INTO HER SONS WINDOW. MAYBE WE SHOULDNT LOOK THAT FAR INTO IT, ITS A KIDS BOOK. THEY THINK ITS CUTE! :)

My mother always used to read this book to me when I was younger. I like the book a lot it represents that no matter how old children get or how they act like when they are 2 years old and throw stuff all over the place or make a mess of everything. Their parents still love them and that some day the children will show their appreciation and love back. It also shows how some songs or traditions are passed on because at the end the son goes and sings the song to his son. I really enjoyed this book and when some day I have kids I will get this book for them because of how it affected me when I was younger.
