Book Review
Love You Forever by Robert N. Munsch, Sheila McGraw

This is such a powerful, sweet little story. Every time I read it to my kids I get choked up.. have to stop.. try to pull myself together. It's very emotional, without being morose at all. Just a simple story, a sweet little song, and a "circle of life" theme that, in its simplicity, has this amazing power to bring one to tears.
And it's not just me; I handed this one to my friend to read in a bookstore, and she started crying, too. I joined in, and we were both very embarrassed, and laughing and crying at the same time.

You have to read this one for yourself, in order to understand. The story itself does not appear to be wringing out one's emotions intentionally; it's just there, a simple little song, but it just sort of pulls on one's heart and creates this wonderful effect.

Recommended, but don't blame me if you cry over it.
