Love You Forever By: Robert Munsch Illustrated By: Sheila McGraw
The other day my oldest daughter Isabela grabbed this book off the bookshelf and began to read it. She got interrupted reading it so when she got back to it she asked if I could read it to her and Emma my youngest daughter excitedly said "yea read it mommy!". This book brings back memories of being in first grade and my teacher reading it to me. I remember it made me feel so emotional. Even today when I read it I tear up at the end! While reading the book Isabela and Emma began talking about how they will live close to me always and we can take turns keeping our cat and take turns having dinner at our houses (which we all decided will be a lane apart from each other).
This is such a pure and beautiful story! We all hope that our children will love, respect and be there for us just as we are for them.
So grab your baby close no matter how old and enjoy this heartfelt story together!
