Read reviews from the world's largest community for readers. An extraordinarily different story by Robert Munsch is a gentle. A mother held her new baby and very slowly rocked him back and forth, back and forth, back and I'll love you forever, He pulled all the books off the shelves.

As he grows, his mother recurrently shows her love for him despite his adolescent behavior which seems to be driving her crazy! Even after the boy has grown into a man his mother drives across town to hold him in her arms and sing to him. The mother eventually becomes too old and sick to carry on with this tradition. Love You Forever presents the unconditional love that parents are expected to have for their children despite the behavior of those children as they grow up. The love that a parent has for a child is an unrestricted love that never falters. In the book, the mother is stressed by the behavior of the son, but still continues to crawl into his room at night, hold him in her arms and sing to him. This parental love is often the first and most important love a person will ever experience. When developing future relationships a person is able to understand and reciprocate love to others because of the love that has first been introduced by their parents. As a person matures from adolescence to adulthood they begin to understand the importance of displaying affection and reciprocating love. Children who do not experience love have a hard time displaying and reciprocating love for another. When the mother becomes elderly and sick her son who is now an adult returns this love by tending and singing to her. A child who experiences love through a parental figure will be more likely to pass this on to their children. This reciprocation of love is important in allowing love to continue to exist.
