Magical (late) Monday- Book review

March 14, 2011

Ohhhhh how I wish this photo was me basking in beautiful classics Oh! and sleeping, something that I may not do tonight due to the monstrous  amount of homework I have left to the last minute. ack.

Sorry for the late Monday post, just drowning in school work….

This book could not be sweeter. If you know any new mothers its pretty much the ultimate gift.

“The mother sings to her sleeping baby: “I’ll love you forever / I’ll love you for always / As long as I’m living / My baby you’ll be.” She still sings the same song when her baby has turned into a fractious 2-year-old, a slovenly 9-year-old, and then a raucous teen. So far so ordinary–but this is one persistent lady. When her son grows up and leaves home, she takes to driving across town with a ladder on the car roof, climbing through her grown son’s window, and rocking the sleeping man in the same way. Then, inevitably, the day comes when she’s too old and sick to hold him, and the roles are at last reversed. Each stage is illustrated by one of Sheila McGraw’s comic and yet poignant pastels. (Ages 4 to 8) Richard Farr

Check it out at your local library or ask around its classic and your mother may eve have it stored away somewhere 😀
