Review: Love You Forever

User Review  - MaKayla Holopirek - Goodreads

I have mixed reviews about this book. I really love the message about unconditional love, but some of the illustrations and descriptions are a little creepy. The image of her crawling across her grown son's floor and peering over his bed is a little strange to me. Read full review
