“I’ll love you forever,
I’ll like you for always,
as long as I’m living
my baby you’ll be.”
One of my favourite children book is I LOVE YOU FOREVER by Robert Munsch, it’s a Canadian picture book that was published in 1986. Our copy of the book was given to us by Sofia’s classmate last year and since them I myself find it reading repeatedly.
The story is so simple but so meaningful, it tells the story of a mother who loves his son so much. Mother’s love never fail, and each time before the day ends, regardless how old his son is she will sneak up to his son’s room and sing the song. Until mommy grew old and died and the father made sure to continue the lullaby to his own daughter.
Like any mother, I can relate I have 2 girls ( one 13 and another 7 ) we have our disagreements but at the end of the day I can’t help it, I will still go to their room and make sure that they are sleeping comfortably.
I visited Robert’s website and found out that this book started with the ” I love you forever ” lullaby. Robert said that he made that lullaby after they had two babies born dead. The song was his song to their dead babies. For a long time it in on his head and he couldn’t even sing it because every time he tried he will end up crying.
