This book makes me cry every single time I read it. A friend gave it to me when my oldest son was born, and a parent educator that taught a class that I took when both of my kids were babies had made up a little tune to the song. She sang it at "storytime" during every class. I don't think the mom in the book is "creepy" like some people do. I see this more as magical realism, not that it's trying to advocate that people actually climb in their grown children's windows.

Nina Gayle I agree with you. Too many people are taking this story too literally.
