When my son was born, "Love you Forever" was the first story I made sure to read to him. It's a story about a son going through different stages of life--from a toddler throwing things in the toilet, a teenager that ignores everyone, to a young man who gets married and then has a baby of his own. The story is so sweet and reflects the love a mother has for her son. The main verse that is repeated throughout the story is:
"I'll love you forever.
I'll like you for always.
As long as I'm living,
My baby you'll be."
I have also come across another similar book by Alison McGhee, called "Someday". Mamas, you better get out the tissues for this book too! It is a story about the relationship of a mother and her daughter. When I was teaching, I read it for the first time in the classroom and burst into tears. I told my classroom aid, Ms. Alicia, to read it and she had the same reaction. It is super super sweet.
