This book is a must have for Mothers and Fathers. I must admit parenthood gives a new respect for your own parents. (I couldn’t read the whole thing without crying until our daughter was over a year.)

I remember reading this as a child, but now that I read it as an adult I have found it a bit disturbing. We received this book as a gift and did not end up keeping it. I found it inappropriate.

My mom used to read this to me and now I read it to my son! "As long as I'm living my baby you'll be" has a whole new meaning now that I'm a mother!

Just a small reminder of the large impact of a mother's love. Highly recommend!

I love this book and after hearing the author's story of why he wrote this (for their baby that passed) it just touches me even more. I love the full circle of the son taking care of his mom & baby.

This is another classic that my mom use to read to me and my siblings when we were little. It is a little sad in the end, but still very sweet and has such a great message.

My 6 yr old loves this book. He likes knowing that even when he grows up I will love him the same as when he was baby and he tells me that he will take care of me and love me the same always.

I had this book as a child and seem to remember reading it. Went to read it to my child and found it creepy that the parent would sneak into the adults room. Not reading anymore!

This was my favorite book when I was a child, probably because I memorized it so I thought I was able to read :) I love sharing this with my daughter.

I cannot get through this book without crying. I'm probably going to have to get rid of it. Great book, but oh my word, the tears!

Sweet story, especially for boy moms! If you read postpartum though, be prepared to bawl!

I have yet to read this without tearing up. It's my favorite book. We'll see what he thinks in a few years when he understands it.

A perfect babyshower gift. All of Robert Munches books are a must. If you don't have any of his books you are missing out.

I can't read this book without bawling my eyes out... so we never read it

Such a special book! I almost cried every time I read it to my son. Amazing!!

This is my all time favorite children’s book. The first time I read it I cried. My toddler loves reading it too and it’s our “special” book to read together. We’ve read it so much, he recites it now.

Sweet little book, easy read but will be great years to come!
