14 Valentines in 14 Days - Day 13

This one is for my baby!

I love you forever
I like you for always
As long as I'm living
My baby you'll be

Do you know this book?
I give it to every new mommy.It's more of a book for the parent than for the child :) Try to read it with a dry eye :)

OMG I remember the first time I heard this book at reading group. Everyone started bawling. I still can't read it without crying..

I LOVE this story! I have a certain tune that I "sing" the Mom's words to and my girls just listen in awe! R...

Hi Martha! Thank you for stopping by my OWOH giveaway-I've been reading your posts--this one in particular caught my interest, as I bought this little paperback book and read it to my children when they were little. Then I gave copies to my daughters and I've read it to my grandchildren--it's a very sweet story, and you're right, it definitely brings tears to my eyes . . . Robert Munsch, the author, tells about how he came to write the story on his website--so sad, but a wonderful book came out of his tragedy. ~Jann
