Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic! I love this book so much, it's a total classic. I know the adult relationship seems weird but the book was written after Munsch and his wife had two stillborn babies. So when you read the story from that perspective, it makes way more sense - and then is totally heartbreaking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now that I have a son... I loved this book as a child when my parents read it to me and now that I have a son I really appreciate the love that a parent has for their child. This book displays in (somewhat dramatic) way how a mother loves her son throughout his life and then the son in full circle cares for his elderly mother. I know the book doesn't mean literally that the mother will go and cradle her adult son every night but it represents the love she has for him. Tearjerker I'm sure when I read this to my son as he grows up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not My Favourite from Munsch I don't understand the reviews that call this book creepy. It's over the top in showing the love between a mother/son, but children's books aren't meant to be totally realistic, it's meant to show the message in a way they can understand. This is a good book and I love Robert Munsch, but even as a child when it came out, this book made me very sad and was not a favourite. Though I understand the appeal I would not buy this book for my own child.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Creepy Sure it's a Robert Munsch book but it's beyond weird. It made me uncomfortable. My mom continues to buy this for others who are having kids because 'it's a classic' but every time she does, I cringe and try to balance things out by buying better kids books...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An extraordinary affirmation of one's love for their child! I have yet to make it through this book with my children without tearing up. How can the love this mother feels for her child not resonate when read through its pages? Well done, Mr. Munsch!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good story This is probably the children's book I most remember from my childhood. It's a classic story that still resonates with a lot of people into adulthood. I'm surprised some of the reviews find this book disturbing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a nice story I have to say I wholeheartedly disagree with the bad reviews of this book. Children's books are meant to be dramatic and over the top. In the end it's really a lovely story about the love a mother has for her child and vice versa. I feel the same way about my son however would obviously not strap a ladder tonthr roof of my car to climb through his window once he's grown. I think we need to remember that this book is written for children, who tend to have fantastic imaginations and are drawn to adventurous and over the top stories. I doubt any kid is reading this and thinking "man this is so creepy".

From Our Editors

"I'll love you foreverI'll like you for alwaysAs long as I'm livingMy baby you'll be."This is the quiet song a mother sings to her newborn son as she gently rocks him back and forth -- he is so sweet and quiet, so good. As the boy passes through the Terrible Twos, the Picky Preteens and Awkward Adolesence, he is not always sweet or quiet or good. He's often just the opposite. Even so, his mother sometimes sneaks into his room and rocks him, no matter big he gets, and sings him the same song. This wonderful story of enduring love is mutual -- the son also sings to his mother when she is old and sick -- and crosses generations -- the son sings the same song to his own daughter -- telling the ongoing tale of family devotion. The illustrations are heartfelt and charming, especially those in which the mother is sneaking up on her son -- at one point, she even drives across town with a ladder strapped to the roof of her car so she can reach the bedroom of his new house! But even when the story gets a little silly, the message is clear and moving -- don't be surprised if you get a little misty as you read! All ages.

Editorial Reviews

This book is beyond emotional. I dare any mother out there, or any child with an aging parent, to read this story and not have a lump in your throat... Should definitely be apart of your child's book collection.
