A young mother holds her baby, and while she sings to it she rocks it back and forth. And through her life, and the stages of his life, she holds her son and rocks him back and forth as she tells him that she will love him forever. In double-page spreads and gatefolds, the whole text of 'Love You Forever' is in this book, and enhanced with three-dimensional elements. But even better is the feature that moves - as the chorus is sung, you can move the characters back and forth. This makes a wonderful extra feature for young readers, the grandchildren of people who raised their own children with this story and who want to pass it to a new generation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
[Review of earlier edition and format: ] Sentimental story that has long been a favorite gift at baby showers.--Karen T.Bilton"Bridgewater Courier News" (04/26/2005)
[Review of earlier edition and format: ] 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)
[Review of earlier edition and format: ] The one book that has the most meaning to me.--David Maloof"Boston Globe" (09/15/2002)
[Review of earlier edition and format: ] No one can read this without the tears falling.--Sharon Owen"Madera Tribune" (05/08/2003)
[Review of earlier edition and format: ] 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)
[Review of earlier edition and format: ] The starting point for a first-rate library for your grandchildren... a tender ode to the life cycle of a family.-- (06/01/2004)
Originally published in 1986, this Robert Munsch classic has not lost its appeal. It is now available in a new pop-up edition which will make a great gift for the new babies of the 21st century... In this new edition we have wonderful double-page spreads and gatefolds with features that enable a rocking motion each time the chorus is repeated. The paper engineering by Bruce Foster is exemplary and little fingers will be delighted with the pop-ups and the motion.-- (12/01/2016)
[Review of earlier edition and format: ] 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)
[Review of earlier edition and format: ] 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)
[Review of earlier edition and format: ] 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)
[Review of earlier edition and format: ] A humorous, sentimental page-turner that rarely -- let's say never -- leaves a reader with a dry eye.-- (12/01/2005)
[Earlier edition and format.] #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)
[Review of earlier edition and format: ] My children and I enjoyed it, night after night, for years... It is a charmer. The simple story touches the heart.-- (11/13/2005)
[Review of earlier edition and format: ] Our No. 1 Favorite, 50 Great Children's Books-- (09/01/2007)
Good children's book showing a mother's enduring love for her son. Several pop-ups and pull tabs make a nice addition to this edition.-- (09/07/2017)
Recommended.--Dave Jenkins"Canadian Review of Materials" (01/05/2018)
[Review of earlier edition and format: ] 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. [Earlier edition and format: ] 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.-- (01/04/2008)
