I discovered myself and my mother in each word. It was as though the author knew my personal story. It's a universal story, reaching across all cultures, ethnicities, ages and genders.
A mother held her new baby and v
very slowly rocked him back and forth,
And while she held him, she sang:
I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always,
As long as I'm living
my baby you'll be.
On the last day of class my gerontology professor gave each student a copy of Love You Ever. It has a cherished place in my home library.
The great news is Love You Forever can be purchased on Amazon.
Fast forward 20 years and I now have a daughter of my own who just turned 1. I'm hoping to be able to share that same connection with her, and bought the book again since I couldn't find the copy I used to have. Just to see if it was still as amazing as I remembered it being, I immediately read through it when I received it. Again, I'm not a very emotional person usually...but about 3/4 of the way through the book my voice began to break and I had to take pauses to wipe my eyes. It's still amazing, and always will be.
This book meant even more after reading on Robert Munsch's website: robertmunsch.com/book/love-you-forever
Love You Forever started as a song.
“I’ll love you forever,
I’ll like you for always,
as long as I’m living
my baby you’ll be.”
I made that up after my wife and I had two babies born dead. The song was my song to my dead babies. For a long time I had it in my head and I couldn’t even sing it because every time I tried to sing it I cried. It was very strange having a song in my head that I couldn’t sing.
After reading that, it just added to how much I love it. When I am with the grand children I will quote the song part to them. The youngest of the grand babies always replies, “My Granny be!” Just another heart-warming memory that stems from this wonderful book.

My son's are grown now, the eldest 32, however he and I have had s strained relationship for a while for reasons that are not I'mportant. Today, I sent him a text, to try and express the unconditional love a mother feels and found myself quoting from this book, with tears streaming down my face. So thank you Amazon prime, I have found the book, cried a fresh while orderingand a copy for my son - which will be with him tomorrow.
No response to my text yet, but I hope it will touch his heart
Seriously though I think this book is a required addition to anyone’s library.
After leaving it around the house and occasionally reading it like some sort of self inflicted tourture, I eventually took it to work and gave it away.
It is very thought provoking and at times bit creepy tbh.
I read it to him regularly and plan to give it him on his 18th.
The thing is it’s so hard not to cry reading it
However husband read it and poked holes at the story so I guess it depends on the reader!
It’s a book I’ve read to all four of my children and I still say the phrase to all of them before bed time.
