MEDIA REVIEWS
The one book that has the most meaning to me.--David Maloof"Boston Globe" (09/15/2002)
There is a powerful, age-old resonance to the story, centered on that intangible, steadfast bond between mother and child.--Shelley Fralic"National Post" (05/15/2006)
No one can read this without the tears falling.--Sharon Owen"Madera Tribune" (05/08/2003)
Sentimental story that has long been a favorite gift at baby showers.--Karen T.Bilton"Bridgewater Courier News" (04/26/2005)
There are certain books about a parent's unconditional love for a child that are timeless--and this is one of them.-- (01/20/2010)
One of my all-time favorites. I cry every time I read it.... [The book] is a beautiful script about parenthood, a poignant parable about life and death, a testimony to when the roles of child and parent become blurry. The story reminds you that no matter how grown up you are, you're always someone's child; that no matter how "adult" you are, you're never too old to be loved by your parents. It makes me appreciate even more how my mother still calls me and my brother (despite us being 32- and 22-years-old, respectively) by our childhood nicknames, Pussycat and Tchotchke (Yiddish for "knickknack"). Pigeonholing this as a children's book is like saying "Romeo & Juliet" is merely a cautionary tale about drug abuse. I dare anyone to read this story and not shed at least one tear by the end. It's even more poignant when you learn that Munsch wrote the book as a memorial to two still-born children he and his wife had in 1979 and 1980.-- (04/20/2010)
Our No. 1 Favorite, 50 Great Children's Books-- (09/01/2007)
The best of Munsch's many storybooks... it'll give you a new song to sing... and maybe a bit of perspective down the road.-- (09/25/2003)
The starting point for a first-rate library for your grandchildren... a tender ode to the life cycle of a family.-- (06/01/2004)
This best-selling classic of a parent's enduring love is available in a gift edition: slipcased with a laminated box and a clothbound book.--BookPage (11/01/2006)
A humorous, sentimental page-turner that rarely -- let's say never -- leaves a reader with a dry eye.-- (12/01/2005)
My children and I enjoyed it, night after night, for years... It is a charmer. The simple story touches the heart.-- (11/13/2005)
#5 on Instructor's "Teachers Pick the Top 50 Kids Books Ever," chosen by 200 teachers, authors, and children's literature experts.--Instructor (11/01/2006)
Robert Munsch's beloved tale is gentle affirmation of the love a parent feels for her child -- forever. Nurtured by the unconditional love of his parent, a boy grows happily through the stages of childhood to become, in turn, a loving adult.-- (01/04/2008)
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.-- (07/01/2010)
