. . . I wanted you more than you’ll ever know,
so I sent love to follow wherever you go. . . .
Love is the greatest gift we have to give our children. It’s the one thing they can carry with them each and every day.
If love could take shape it might look something like these heartfelt words and images from the inimitable Nancy Tillman. Here is a book to share with your loved ones, no matter how near or far, young or old, they are.
Nancy Tillman is the author and illustrator of the New York Times best-selling picture book On the Night You Were Born and its companion journal, The Wonder of You: A Book for Celebrating Baby's First Year. Her other books include The Spirit of Christmas and Tumford the Terrible. A former advertising executive, Tillman now writes and illustrates full-time. She lives in Tualatin, Oregon.
Praise for Wherever You Are, My Love Will Find You:
“The illustrations that flow across each page of this tale are every bit as beautiful as the message: Never doubt that you’re number one with Mom.” --Parenting: Early Years
"Encourages an adult and child to snuggle affectionately together with a book is undeniable and may make this just the balm the doctor (or librarian) ordered.” --Booklist
“Parents and grandparents with a sweet tooth will likely lap up the latest in Tillman’s string of sentimental favorites.” --Kirkus Reviews
“[Tillman] has an unerring instinct for dramatic composition--in these pages, readers get the sense of spying on a secret world--and her potent combination of unapologetic sentiment, fantasy, photorealism, and painterliness has an undeniable allure.” --Publishers Weekly
“Oh, to be the lucky child whose parent reads Wherever You Are, My Love Will Find You aloud…Wherever You Are, My Love Will Find You is the book you want to give to whomever you love; it would make a memorable birthday, holiday or ‘just because’ gift, and it is sure to be treasured.” --BlogCritics.org
Praise for On the Night You Were Born:
“This is one of those rare baby books that should make both skeptics and sentimentalists of all ages happy.”—Publishers Weekly
“A beautiful tribute to the uniqueness of every child.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Many parents will welcome this opportunity to tell their children how special and loved they are.”—Booklist
Praise for It’s Time to Sleep, My Love:
“As in On the Night You Were Born, the words directly address a young listener with comforting, fanciful imagery. . . . culminating in a final scene of a sleeping child in a floating bed under a watchful moon, this gentle, tender offering will buoy children with its strong messages of safety and love.”—Booklist
“A luxuriant bedtime retreat for children and parents alike.”—Kirkus Reviews
Praise for The Spirit of Christmas:
“Tillman expertly swirls together reality and fantasy—the narrator's child delights in the sight of the decorated tree, the lion lies down with the lamb—as is fitting for such a magical night.”—Shelf Awareness
“Handsomely illustrated, this Christmas book is bound to be hyped as the perfect seasonal gift. . . . Tillman’s sentimental sensibility and beautiful artwork ensure that this will become a popular choice at holiday time.”—Booklist
“A beautiful and timeless book.”—School Library Journal
“As the adult speaker of the story nods off in a comfy red chair, the Spirit of Christmas appears, ready to get the narrator in the holiday spirit. What follows is a buoyant, imagistic tribute to the season, as the Spirit lists joys both concrete and intangible, before offering the reminder: ‘Because it took nothing but love to begin it,/ it’s not really Christmas if love isn’t in it.’ Tillman’s ethereal illustrations are surreal but captivating.”—Publishers Weekly
“Bestselling author Tillman offers a dreamlike interpretation of the collective spirit that permeates the holiday.”—Kirkus Reviews
