Love me tender, love me sweet;
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.

Kindergarten-Grade 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.
