I remember having this book read to me as a young child and being completely entranced. LOVE YOU FOREVER tells the story of a mother caring for her son - first as a baby boy, then as a toddler, a teen and a young adult. Then it becomes the boy’s turn to take care of his mother. The illustrations are spot-on depictions of those quiet moments when a mother steals into her childs room just to see him sleeping.
