    Just a simple little book with a great big story.

    How many of you have read it, how many of you
    own a copy?

    I don't think I have read it but I hope this isn't one of those secret poles where you actually wrote the book and want to know how many people bought it!?

    I read it many many times to my girls when they were little. They are 19 and 21 now. And yes, I still have it. Hoping to read it to my future grandchildren one day.

    No...I'm afraid I'm not capable of writing a childrens book.

    Love You Forever was by Robert Munsch in 1986.

    Oh.. Well I'll have to rent it from the library and read it to myself. My librarians are used to this 18 year old renting childrens books. There just way more entertaining! Reference books and Shel Silverstein. Thats the life for me!

    How about Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney? Or The Big, Big Sea by Martin Waddell? Or Little Boy by Alison McGhee?

    Sounds like a book I'll have to check out.

    Have it, read it and don't like it. Sweet message, but a little weird at times.

    One of those books I loved as a kid, but am creeped out by as an adult! "The Giving Tree" and "Runaway Bunny" are also in that grouping, though I do believe the former was self-aware.

    Haha-the giving tree was a good. But your right Shel Silverstein in retrospect is a little wonky!
