Love Me Tender
This book with CD is the sweetest for bedtime. All the photographs are handpainted and are of a doting father with his four year old daughter. It is the perfect book for us all to unwind and settle down with at Jamie's bedtime.
THis is still a much treasured ritual in our household and helps immensely to get Jamie to calma down into bedtime mode.
Synopsis from Ebay (They want $46 for this book used!)
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.
