Great book for Valentine's season. It illustrates the love a parent has for their children. Even when the boy has grown up the mom sneaks into his house via ladder to sing to him. I don't think normal parents would do that, but it just shows in a way a child can understand the depth of a mom or dad's love. The song that's repeated in the book "I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, As long as I'm living my baby you'll be" is such a nice way for any parent to express their love as they read to their children.
