"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.
