Any mother's true feelings revealed

I love this book. I was too old for it when it was first published, but I remember my mother reading it to my baby sister. It's a sweet story and now that I have children I understand it more. The people who claim it is creepy obviously missed the point and I pity them for their lack of insight. It is meant to be a SYMBOLIC journey of a mother's love for her child. No matter how old your child gets or what they accomplish in life, they are always your "baby". My daughter is two now and I sometimes wish I could rock her as an infant again for just a few minutes. I'll probably have the same feeling when she is twelve, twenty, or sixty-two. This book illustrates that longing in a way that is both heartfelt and whimsical.

I was given this book as a shower gift for my first baby. Looked cute on the cover, but when I read through it I was thoroughly disturbed! In fact, I'm disturbed that SO many people seem to love this book! This book in NO way represents a healthy parent/child relationship. What parent crawls (literally) into her teenage son's room at night to rock him in his sleep? Worse yet, the mother later drives to her grown son's home with a ladder, breaks in, and rocks him again. Twisted! I am very close to my parents and have a wonderful, healthy relationship with them, but, thankfully, they allowed me to grow up into an independent adult without this type of clinging. The parent/child interactions in this book are in no way normal or admirable. The general theme of unconditional love is, of course, a wonderful one, but there are so many great children's books out there that address that topic in a more successful (and at least not truly disturbing!) manner. Pass this one by!
