This book is such an enjoyable read. The first time I read it was while babysitting several young children. I did not make it to the end of the book before I started shedding a tear. It is just so touching. It is the best book in demonstrating just how important a mother's touch is and the appreciation that the son has for his mother. He in turn, does the same for her as she ages. I am 22 years old and I love the book so much that I bought it for myself. I too hope that someday it affects my children the way it affects me.

I just read my son to sleep with this book, and it's so beautiful! I only had one year of college French and I could read it, although there were a few phrases here and there that I was reading without knowing what they meant. I did get a bit choked up at the end. I especially love that the mother grows old because we don't often see older folks in such a beautiful light in our culture. I was a little afraid the book might touch on the subject of death, which is a little heavy yet, but it didn't.

The previous reviewer who thought it was creepy was probably referring to one page where the mom drives to her adult son's new home and climbs up into his window to hold him in her arms and sing to him. It was pretty clear to me that it was a tongue-in-cheek continuance of the rhythm of the book, where she holds him and sings to him each night. It's still a beautiful book, and in my opinion by no means creepy.

THE FIRST TIME I READ THIS I WAS IN A DEPARTMENT STORE WITH MY TWO CHILDREN, 9 & 10. I CRIED WHEN I READ THIS BOOK RIGHT THERE IN THE STORE. I BOUGHT IT AND READ IT AGAIN TO MY CHILDREN AT BEDTIME AND CRIED AGAIN. IT REALLY TOUCHES THE HEART OF ANYONE READING IT. IT MAKES YOU REALIZE ANEW WHAT IS REALLY INPORTANT. LOVE. IT ALSO REMINDS YOU OF THE FACT THAT THE SEEDS YOU PLANT ARE THE ONES THAT YOU WILL HARVEST. THIS IS AN ABSOLUTELY LOVELY BOOK. IT WILL BE TREASURED IN OUR HOME FOR MANY, MANY YEARS. I ENJOY READING IT TO MYSELF JUST TO REMIND MYSELF THAT THERE ARE MORE IMPORTANT THINGS THAN MONEY, JOBS, CHORES. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE MORE BOOKS OF THIS NATURE. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

The first time I read "Love You Forever" was in the bookstore when my 8 year old grandaughter handed it to me, sat on my lap, and asked me to read it. By the time I got to the page where the son was holding his mother in his arms, I had to keep dabbing my eyes because of the tears. When I've mentioned the book to other women the reaction is always the same. It's almost impossible to make it through the book without bringing tears to your eyes. From the time she becomes a mother, the main character in this book holds her precious child on her lap and rocks him back and forth and vows to love him forever. As he grows older and eventually goes away she still continues rocking him and tells him that she'll love him forever. The day finally comes when she is old and unable to rock her son and the torch is passed to him. He holds his mother and rocks her and at this point you can only assume that she has died. With that, he returns home where he picks up his baby girl and begins the same routine. This book will surely tug at your heart.

Ce petit bonhomme que vous voyez assis dans les toilettes, entouré des mille et unes bêtises qu'il a faites, ce petit bonhomme est l'enfant d'une Maman douce et aimante. Mais ses facéties ne la font pas toujours rire : "Cet enfant va me rendre FOLLE !", parfois "elle aurait voulu le vendre au ZOO !", parfois, c'est elle qui avait "l'impression d'être dans un ZOO !"...

Mais toujours, toujours, toujours... le soir, la nuit, elle le prenait dans ses bras pour lui chanter au creux de l'oreille :

"Je t'aimerai toujours,
La nuit comme le jour,
Et tant que je vivrai
Tu seras mon bébé."

C'est ce que je disais à mon fils, lorsqu'il était tout petit si je l'avais grondé. C'est ce que je lui dis encore et c'est ce que je lui dirai toujours, parce que ces quelques pages expriment avec justesse et délicatesse la force du lien qui unit parents et enfants, quoi qu'il arrive.

Like everyone else who has had the opportunity to read this book, it touched me! It made me realize how precious the love for a child is. It made cry! I think is important for kids my age to read this book, so they can value the love from their parents.

This is such a cute book, and a good translation of the original English. The translation keeps all the rhymes and the basic idea, which is cute unto itself. :)

I love this book!! In Enlish and French. I haven't read French for several years so I had to do some vocabulary review but it was worth it.
