Details:

A young woman holds her newborn son
And looks at him lovingly.

Softly she sings to him:
"I'll love you forever
I'll like you for always
As long as I'm living
My baby you'll be."

So begins the story that has touched the hearts of millions worldwide. Since publication in 1986, Love You Forever has sold more than 15 million copies in paperback and the regular hardcover edition (as well as hundreds of thousands of copies in Spanish and French).

The mother sings to her sleeping baby: "I'll love you forever / I'll love you for always / As long as I'm living / My baby you'll be." She still sings the same song when her baby has turned into a fractious 2-year-old, a slovenly 9-year-old, and then a raucous teen. So far so ordinary--but this is one persistent lady. When her son grows up and leaves home, she takes to driving across town with a ladder on the car roof, climbing through her grown son's window, and rocking the sleeping man in the same way. Then, inevitably, the day comes when she's too old and sick to hold him, and the roles are at last reversed. Each stage is illustrated by one of Sheila McGraw's comic and yet poignant pastels. (Ages 4 to 8) --Richard FarrStrap your 2 to 8-year-olds in their car seats, start your engines, and set a course for 60 or so complaint-free minutes. This is a story lover's Shangri-la, with each of thirteen tales tickling a funny bone or tugging hard on a heartstring. Familiarity with Robert Munsch's many books isn't necessary; the author's boisterous, bumpy narration encourages kids to giggle, groan, and sometimes shout along, and his knack for kooky sound effects (a gobble-gobble turkey sound translates to a full-on, fists-flying ruckus in a story like "Thomas' Snowsuit") lassos the ears of the uninitiated enough to leave visuals to the imagination. The challenge for grownups: Try to make it through the title track at disc's end without tearing up. Few stories outside of The Velveteen Rabbit are as heartwarming. --Tammy La Gorce
