And looks at him lovingly.
Softly she sings to him:
"I'll love you forever
I'll like you for always
As long as I'm living
My baby you'll be."
So begins the story that has touched the hearts of millions worldwide. Since publication in l986, Love You Forever has sold more than 15 million copies in paperback and the regular hardcover edition (as well as hundreds of thousands of copies in Spanish and French)
I've always loved this book, since I was a kid and my mom read it to me. But it takes on a whole new meaning when you have a child of your own. I read it to my son and am not ashamed to admit that my eyes grew damp for a bit there. I think it should be in every child's library and read to them often.
