Longtail is so much faster than Littletail. He's also so much cleverer. But that won't be forever, Longtail tells Littletail. At the end of a busy and tiring day, as Littletail curls up in their nest, Longtail reminds her of the one thing that will stay the same - always and forever.

1. I Love You Always and Forever is a sweet story about a father and daughter mouse. Longtail and Littletail spend their day playing in the forest. Littletail over and over again compares herself to Longtail. She thinks he always does things better than she can. However with each comparison, Longtail reassures Littletail that these things will not always be forever because she will grow bigger soon enough! This endearing story ends with Longtail telling Littletail how the only thing that will st ...more

This is another book that I think I enjoyed more than Lyra (25 months). It's very reminiscent of Little Nutbrown Hare in that it's a cute, simple story with a loving animal daddy figure, or other male caretaker, since it doesn't actually specify the relationship, just uses male pronouns for the "Long Tail" and female for "Little Tail." This might go over better for the under-2 crowd. Lyra seems to be at a point now where she prefers stories with a little more going on. This would be a sweet book ...more

I like this parent-child "I love you" book, because the parent refers repeatedly to how the child will grow up to be like the parent. And then ending that the one things that won't change is they will always love the child. Cute and sentimental. Predictable but just right for the young crowd. Still, not what I'm looking for in my Love storytime. Perhaps I'll keep it on display though.

This is a lovely book to read to a child. I first read it to my daughter and she loved it, then she was like my turn. And she read it to be, well she was telling me the story by looking at the illustration and at the end she said, "I love you, mami."
I would use this book as a read aloud and then have children draw a picture about something they do with their parents.

This is the story of Littletail and Longtail Mouse. Littletail and Longtail were playing in the forest. “Catch me if you can!” said Littletail. She wanted to play with her Daddy. Littletail may have been fast but of course Longtail was faster. He scooped up Littletail. “You always catch me!” cried Littletail. “Well it won’t be forever” said Longtail. Throughout the day they played other games like hide and go seek and follow the leader. Always Longtail caught Littletail but he always reminded he ...more

This book shows a love of father to his young daughter. I like how the father always tells his daughter that someday she will grow up to be an adult just like her father. He tells her that she will grow to be faster and stronger then her father. Even though she is young, her father never tells her that she cannot do something; instead he tells her she will do it better when she gets bigger. The father shows his daughter unconditional love.



The learning experience would be to teach children about

This is a fantastic board book, as not only is it a story about a father mouse and his young daughter, but it's a beautiful story that no matter how children grow, their parents will always love them. As a parent, I loved that power message. Jonathan Emmett does a fantastic job at expressing the ways the father will always love his young daughter, no matter what she can or can't do.

The reason I liked this book so much was becasue it was about a daddy mouse and his little girl. So many of the books written are mother and child books. My girls like the pictures and think that the mice are cute.

This is just one example of a family love book that totally eclipses Munsch's Love You Forever! The love between the father and young mouse is genuine, normal, and expressed in beautiful terms and charming interaction.

Wonderful book about how our children change and how we as parents change, but the one thing that always remains the same is how much we love our children. Sweet book.
Jody Lewandowski
Slightly more sophisticated theme - asks children to think into the future. But the illustrations and the comforting story are just right for story times.
Edna
Another sweet book parent-child book with father mouse and little mouse playing in the woods and commenting on who does what because he is bigger or smaller.
