what parents are saying
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. (Aug 30, 2013)

I love this book. I love the message it gives. It’s more for older kids though but it is still an amazing book. I have it for my baby to read to him as he grows

A sweet tale I've heard people say they've found a bit odd. However when you know it was written by a grieving man to his stillborn child, I think you'll only feel and see love in the pages.

I cry every time I read this. This is a book that I hope to pass onto my son when he is older, so he always knows how much I love him. It has such a great meaning.

Beautiful book but I can not read it to my daughter because it makes me cry. Dad takes this one when it's asked for.

Love this book. Such a sad backstory. Illustrations are beautiful.

Makes me teary eyed Everytime I read it. I've lost the one I had when I was a child otherwise I would definitely be reading to my own kids.

This is the saddest, sweetest book. I think I like it more than my kids do but it is a really sweet story and my daughter enjoys us reading it to my son.

Very cute book (I love it), but it does not keep the attention of my 16 month old son. Hopefully he will like it when he's a little older

The first book I bought when I found out I was pregnant with my son. I've always loved this book and love sharing it with my kids.

Perfect little book for bedtime or during the day. Plus it’s a classic.

This is such a classic book and I love reading it to my son. It's hard to get through without shedding a tear, but so worth it. It teaches your child you will always be there. Definitely recommend.

This book holds a lot of meaning in so many ways. It's one I keep close to my heart. It's a must & one I give to every new mommy I know! Can't say enough good things about this cherished book!

The idea that no matter how old you get or where you go, you are loved is important for every one of us!

Probably my most treasured book from my childhood. I have very fond memories of my grandma reading this book to me.

Some people say this is a classic but I could do without...it is really sad and if you are emotional wait to read it another time unless you will sob!

We love reading this book.

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.
Oct 06, 2017
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!
Sep 22, 2017
Just a small reminder of the large impact of a mother's love. Highly recommend!

My favorite book growing up and I read it to my daughter now.
Aug 30, 2017
Such a sweet beloved classic book! I can't get through it without crying!
Jul 24, 2017
If only I could get through this without crying. This is a sentimental and sweet classic children's book.
Jul 20, 2017
This book gets me everytime! My mom used to read it to me now I get to read it to my son!
Jul 19, 2017
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.
Jul 15, 2017
Love this book I'm expecting my first child and every time I read it it still makes me teary eyed
Jun 18, 2017
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.
Jun 10, 2017
One of my favorite books when I was a child. My son enjoys it as well.
May 17, 2017
Who doesn't cry reading this book?? It's a sweet story of love and I can't wait for my daughter to love it as much as I did.
May 12, 2017
Another tear jerker. My husband has a signed copy from his mother that we read to our children.
May 11, 2017
Creepy. I recycled this book.
Mar 15, 2017
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.
Mar 04, 2017
Amazing book. Great repetitive phrases and content to help little ones guess whats coming next.

This tugs at the heartstrings - such a lovely, emotional story!

My favorite book when i was a kid and I can't wait for my daughter to read it!
Jan 31, 2017
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!

Such a sweet message about mother and child relationships
