Love You Forever Pop-Up Edition

$24.95

The much-loved bestseller, now in a pop-up edition. When we published Love You Forever in 1986, we thought it had great appeal. But we had no idea that booksellers would love it and sell 30 million copies. Now there is a gift edition whose characters move! A young mother holds her baby, and while she sings to it she rocks it back and forth. And through her life, and the stages of his life, she holds her son and rocks him back and forth as she tells him that she will love him forever. In double-page spreads and gatefolds, the whole text of Love You Forever is in this book, and enhanced with three-dimensional elements. But even better is the feature that moves — as the chorus is sung, you can move the characters back and forth. This makes a wonderful extra feature for young readers, the grandchildren of people who raised their own children with this story and who want to pass it to a new generation. Paper engineering by Bruce Foster.

Review

[Review of earlier edition and format:] There are certain books about a parent’s unconditional love for a child that are timeless–and this is one of them. (Baltimore’s Child 2010-01-20)

[Review of earlier edition and format:] Robert Munsch’s beloved tale is gentle affirmation of the love a parent feels for her child — forever. Nurtured by the unconditional love of his parent, a boy grows happily through the stages of childhood to become, in turn, a loving adult.
[Earlier edition and format:] This best-selling classic of a parent’s enduring love is available in a gift edition: slipcased with a laminated box and a clothbound book. (BookPage 2008-01-04)

[Review of earlier edition and format:] The one book that has the most meaning to me. (David Maloof Boston Globe 2002-09-15)

[Review of earlier edition and format:] Sentimental story that has long been a favorite gift at baby showers. (Karen T.Bilton Bridgewater Courier News 2005-04-26)

[Review of earlier edition and format:] The best of Munsch’s many storybooks… it’ll give you a new song to sing… and maybe a bit of perspective down the road. (Leanne Dohy Calgary Herald 2003-09-25)

[Review of earlier edition and format:] This book is beyond emotional. I dare any mother out there, or any child with an aging parent, to read this story and not have a lump in your throat… Should definitely be apart of your child’s book collection. (community.cafelibri.com 2010-07-01)

[Review of earlier edition and format:] One of my all-time favorites. I cry every time I read it…. [The book] is a beautiful script about parenthood, a poignant parable about life and death, a testimony to when the roles of child and parent become blurry. The story reminds you that no matter how grown up you are, you’re always someone’s child; that no matter how “adult” you are, you’re never too old to be loved by your parents. It makes me appreciate even more how my mother still calls me and my brother (despite us being 32- and 22-years-old, respectively) by our childhood nicknames, Pussycat and Tchotchke (Yiddish for “knickknack”). Pigeonholing this as a children’s book is like saying “Romeo & Juliet” is merely a cautionary tale about drug abuse. I dare anyone to read this story and not shed at least one tear by the end. It’s even more poignant when you learn that Munsch wrote the book as a memorial to two still-born children he and his wife had in 1979 and 1980. (Dana Lenetz Forbes 2010-04-20)

[Review of earlier edition and format:] A humorous, sentimental page-turner that rarely — let’s say never — leaves a reader with a dry eye. (Gayle MacDonald Globe and Mail 2005-12-01)

[Earlier edition and format.] #5 on Instructor’s “Teachers Pick the Top 50 Kids Books Ever”, chosen by 200 teachers, authors, and children’s literature experts. (Instructor 2006-11-01)

[Review of earlier edition and format:] My children and I enjoyed it, night after night, for years… It is a charmer. The simple story touches the heart. (Jeith L. Runyon Louisville Courier-Journal 2005-11-13)
