Overview

Love me tender, love me sweet;
Never let me go.
You have made my life complete,
And I love you so.

Elvis Presley first sang "Love Me Tender" in the 1956 film of the same name. It was Presley's big screen debut and launched a stellar movie career. But it was the song, which Elvis co-wrote, that people took to their hearts. It is still one of his most popular. Now paired with Tom Browning's beautifully rendered paintings, these moving lyrics become a testament to the unconditional love between parent and child. A birthday, a walk in the park, that first tentative bike ride, and other special moments shared between a father and daughter make Elvis Presley's Love Me Tender an album full of precious memories.

A father and daughter share their special bond through Elvis Presley's timeless lyrics.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Elvis Presley's Love Me Tender, artist Tom Browning reinterprets the ballad as a testament to the bond between a father and daughter, portraying them together in a variety of settings and seasons. Adults familiar with the song may be uncomfortable with the romantic implications of the words, but children should have no such qualms. An Elvis CD is included.

Children's Literature
A father and daughter share their special bond through Elvis Presley's timeless lyrics of Love Me Tender. The illustrations in this book depict that unconditional love in beautiful form. Everyday and special moments are depicted. Each page is lovely and the words are brought to life. There is a CD of the song attached to the inside back cover. I suspect that the CD will be the first thing to be lost if the book is purchased by libraries. It will not be as easily replaced as the usual CD s can be. A system of check on return may be needed. There could be some confusion in the thinking that Elvis Presley is the man on the cover with his daughter. However the likeness may not be a question for most adults. The summary on the back of the title page is the only real clue in clearing up any doubts. Most grandparents will want to share the book with little children because of the song but they will also be impressed with the format of the book. 2003, Harper Collins Children's Books,

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-More than 40 years after Elvis Presley sang this hit as a love song, its words have been reinterpreted as a tribute of a father's love for his daughter. Beautiful parent-and-child moments are captured in Browning's oil paintings-events as ordinary as bath and reading time as well as special occasions like picnics, a birthday, and skiing. The illustrations are the real treasure of this book. An Elvis CD is included, but you don't really need it. Just read the words and let the pictures speak for themselves.-Jane Marino, Scarsdale Public Library, NY Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Who would have thought that the King's classic song could have made such a lovely read-aloud for children? The idea isn't new: David Byrne's Stay Up Late, illustrated by Maira Kalman (1989), and Bob Dylan's Man Gave Names to All the Animals, illustrated by Scott Menchin (1999), are two brilliant examples of the genre. Browning's (Santa's Time Off, o.p.) full-bleed paintings, with beautifully loose and fluid brushwork and their sunlit colors, follow a girl and her dad through the seasons and a series of homespun activities. It is surprising how well the lyrics illuminate such: "You have made / my life complete, / And I love you so" is on a page where the child is learning to ride a bike before a white picket fence covered in red roses, Dad at the ready. "Love me tender, / love me true, / All my dreams / fulfill" finds Dad reading in a big armchair, lap full of book and daughter. "I'll be yours / through all the years, / Till the end of time" is a gorgeous portrait of the girl at the front door, where the dog sits and a pumpkin waits. Dad is buttoning up her sweater, for her arms are full of schoolbooks. Cutting out Valentine hearts, picnicking in the woods, playing golf and croquet, learning to ski and ice-skate, having a bath or a birthday party, all are portrayed in the warm colors of sweetly old-fashioned affection and memory, some repeating as album snapshots on the opening and closing pages. The father and child are the only people in these images, intensifying the bond being celebrated. Includes a CD of Elvis singing, bringing his tender ballad to yet another generation.
