I bought this book for my son, who is three. He loves it. He loves the story, the rhymes, and even the art that others have complained about. It's a sweet story about what a mother promises to do for her son -- she can't promise perfection, but she promises her love. It's a great little book for kids. I'm pleased with it, and so is my son. His opinion of it counts for more in my opinion, because kids are definitely honest.

I bought this book for my son's first birthday based on the great reviews. I was very disappointed. The pictures are strange. They are also only on the right side of each page along with text. The left side in the book is totally blank. The text rhymes, but it felt like it did not have a good flow. I also did not like how the boy got in trouble for things like clogging the toilet and writing on the wall. My 4 year old daughter read it with me as well and she thought it was terrible a kid would do those kinds of things. I ultimately ended up returning the book.

I bought this book for my wife on behalf of our son for Mother's Day based on all the great reviews and was embarrassed when we actually read it. It is definitely a homemade-quality product trying to be passed off as something professional. The illustrations contain an odd assortment of backgrounds. Some are drawings that look halfway decent while others are terribly pixelated photos. I'm at a loss to explain all of the good reviews. I wouldn't have spent a dime on it if I'd seen this in a store.

Who is trying to pass off a homemade looking book for something professionally done, but also trying to charge professional prices for it? The illustrations are horribly cheap looking, pixellated clip art. Hire an illustrator.

I wouldnt pay a dollar for it much less $10. What a rip off!

I really enjoyed reading this book with my son (although now I'm worried I'm gonna have to do some things with him I haven't in the past!! :).
I came across this one while reading the author's children's book for peanut allergies and I love them both.
OK, I confess, I had tears in my eyes when reading the last page out loud to my child!

Really cool book.

A heartwarming poem that displays a mother's unconditional love for her son. It was fun, delightful, and just overall cute. Great job!

This was my valentines gift to my four year old. He made me read it to him 5 times in a row! The graphics are strange to me but my kid loves them.

It's a nice read for any Mother that has a son or many sons'. A very simple book with a nice, touching message.
