What’s Your Favorite Children’s Book with a Love Theme?

Part of my Lake Michigan Rock Heart Collection

It’s Valentine’s Day, so what more fitting way to honor the day of love than to talk about our favorite children’s books with a love theme.  I’ll start….  🙂


Love You Forever by Robert Munsch is my all time favorite story that I ever read to my kids.  The story follows the relationship between a mother and her child from birth to teenage years with her child causing different emotions of frustrations that mark the life cycle of a child, but that no matter what the child may do he will always be loved.  The story ends as the child grows, leaves the house, and starts his own family.  When he embraces his frail mother at the end of the story showing the circle of life I cannot help but choke up.  The stanza that continues throughout is:


“I’ll love you forever,

I’ll like you for always,

As long as I’m living

my baby you’ll be.”


What is your favorite children’s book with a love theme?

And in case you’re curious, Gone With the Wind is tops in the adult fiction genre of love.

  1. I can’t remember all of the books about love because it has been so long ago. My daughter did like one book which we read over and over – Are You My Mother? Can’t remember the author. She loved how the little bird found its mother, and I suppose it helped her with some anxiety about losing me. Her brother, however, got sick of it!

  2. Love You Forever is a GREAT tear-jerker!

    One book that I enjoy reading to children is Olive, My Love by Vivian Walsh. It is wacky and kid-friendly. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy!
