Rezension bezieht sich auf: Love You Forever (Taschenbuch)
I really enjoyed this book. It deeply touched my heart when I read it for the first time. The first thing is that I had a 2 year old at the time and I could identify even with the cover. Although some say the mother's comments in the story are mean i.e. "This kid is driving me crazy", I think the author is trying to touch on the reality of the frustrations we go through as mothers. I have two interpretations of the idea of the mother driving across town with a ladder to cradle her son. 1) it shows how that this mother had a routine for every night and she would do anything to make sure her son knew she loved him, which brings me into my second point which is that I think this book was supposed to have a hint of silliness in regards to this issue. My boys chuckled a little because they knew it was extrememe. They knew that mothers don't drive across town with ladders on the tops of their cars to rock their adult sons. The thing I really liked was that the mother had taught the some how to love and nurture. In the Bible in Proverbs 31 it says, "her children will arise and call her blessed." I thought it was wonderful how the son went to his mother and nurtured her when she needed him. I would hope that when I get old that my boys will care about me that much. Obviously, this did not go on forever as it mentions that one night she called him and asked him to visit soon. I don't think she was seeing him every night by this point. For those of you who rated this book as "perverse" and things of that nature, I feel sorry for you that you have nothing better to do than to be so critical and read in to every little thing. I protect my children but I also guide them and the know the difference. You can hide things from your children but eventually you have to give them guidance so they will know how to deal with life. It is people like you who try to make out movies like "Lion King" and other children's movies to be damaging to children. Get a life! You all must get offended by everything.
P.S. Does anyone know the actual melody to the "I Love You Forever" song? I heard somewhere it was a folk song
