What's Love You Forever About

Publisher Summary

Booksellers have sold more than 30 million copies of Love You Forever in paperback and hardcover. Now we have a board version, printed on light, crisp whiteboard and slightly reduced for child-sized hands. Yet it contains every word of the original, which is much-loved by grandparents and parents everywhere. Watch for major promotion this fall. A young mother holds her baby, and while she sings to it she rocks it back and forth. And through her life, and the stages of his life, she holds her son and rocks him back and forth as she tells him that she will love him forever.

What Kind of Book is Love You Forever

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom, Avid Children's Book Reader, Austen and Potter Fangirl

I know that this is a classic, and while I understand and appreciate the message of a mother’s enduring love for her child (particularly as it needs to be understood by a child to feel safe and secure no matter what lies ahead), the idea of driving across town and crawling through your grown child’s open window to rock them to sleep is a little off-putting.

Readerly Mom
Bay Area mother of two, world traveler, book lover, picky reader

This book has always struck me as being for parents, not for kids. Now that I have kids of my own, I’ve confirmed that diagnosis. It’s kind of sweet and kind of painful for me to read as a parent—hey, here’s a reminder that your babies won’t be babies for ever! And my kids are just not interested in the story and don’t see themselves in it at all. I can see the appeal, though, and why it’s such a favorite for other families.
