The truth behind Love You Forever

ImageRobert Munsch’s  is a classic baby shower gift and, as I’ve said before, is a book more for parents than for children. Some people find it charming; some people (you will be unsurprised to discover that I fall into this category) find the image of a mother climbing into her grown son’s window to rock him faintly disturbing. But I find myself changing my outlook along with this BabyCenter blogger when she posted the real story behind Munsch’s canonical story of parental love.

  1. Wow, that’s incredible! And so sad! 😦 I immediately called my mom and let her know, because she used to read me that book. She loves it; it never disturbed her.
