Read from the Book

On the day that we met and I put you to bed,
I noticed a crown on the top of your head.
It was made up of sparkling, glimmering things.
Like moonlight, and fireflies, and dragonfly wings.

Editorial Reviews

"...this is soothing, visually attractive, and makes for a comforting bedtime read-aloud." -Booklist"Tillman adds another dreamy volume to her collection of self-esteem-building titles." -School Library Journal"Parents and grandparents will love to read this aloud to their little ones..." -Kirkus Reviews"There's something magical about the idea of intimacy with wild animals; spreads in which Tillman imagines such interactions, like the cover image of the child asleep astride a zebra, have special power, especially as they're rendered with photograph-like verisimilitude." -Publishers Weekly"Nancy Tillman returns to the theme that she celebrated in her poetic essay book On the Night You Were Born--every child is special and beloved..While the re-iterated affirmations on each page may seem a bit much for the less sentimental types, there is no question that Tillman's message is one that young children need to hear." -Children's Literature
