Reading these divine stories together offers some sweet moments and opportunities to remind one another how special you are to one another.

This gorgeous book has been popular for such a long time now, that almost everyone I know has a copy, if not two!

Love You Forever – Robert Munsch
My mum bought this story for my son when he was a baby. Although I didn’t read it to him for a long time, it’ll definitely be one I pack in his bag when he leaves home. It tells of a simply beautiful heartfelt story of a mothers love for her son as he grows up and then his care and love for her as she grows old. It does gently imply the death of the mother when she is old, however, it is done in such a gentle way it does not take away from the main theme of the story which is unconditional love between a mother and her son.
