about

We're not all the same. Thank goodness we're not.
Life would be boring, and I mean. a lot.

And so, when we're born, we're supplied at the start
with our own bells and whistles to set us apart.

Think of your bells as the things you do best
things tucked away in your own treasure chest.

Part of growing up is discovering-and embracing-what makes us unique. From different abilities to different personalities, we are all wonderfully made with our own bells and whistles.

Once again, New York Times-bestselling author and artist Nancy Tillman takes a universal truth and makes it accessible for readers young and old.

Nancy Tillman is the author and illustrator of the bestselling picture book On the Night You Were Born; its companion journal, The Wonder of You: A Book for Celebrating Baby's First Year; and the New York Times bestsellers Wherever You Are, My Love Will Find You; The Crown on Your Head; and I'd Know You Anywhere, My Love.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from You're All Kinds of Wonderful by Nancy Tillman I like that the word "special" is not used. This word has been over used and therefore, lost much of its "power" as a word. Recently, an acquaintance of mine said, "If everyone is special, then no one is. What we are is we are all unique." I like that definition better. The inclusion of a child with (I am assuming) Down Syndrome, but it is not "a big deal", she just is there, is very refreshing. If you want to teach "we are all people" do not make it "you and them" make it "us" but just have it....do not point it out. The illustrations are classically Tillman. The "dream state" of them makes it a nice bedtime or anytime read. However, the one complaint I have is, it has been done before. There is nothing unique about it. We have all been there before. However, I would recommend this as a new baby, first birthday or a gift for a "special" occasion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! The image caught my attention immediately and felt it would hold many good messages. I like the rhythm of the story and I hope it speaks to children.

Editorial Reviews

"Tillman's latest celebration of children's unique qualities and talents pictures kids in various pursuits, joined by animals that often take part in the fun. ... Tillman emphasizes the importance of perseverance in discovering and honing one's skills. ... She provides an ethnically diverse cast of children, and includes a young swimmer with a developmental disability. " -Publishers WeeklyPraise for Nancy Tillman:"Her potent combination of unapologetic sentiment, fantasy, photorealism, and painterliness has an undeniable allure." -Publishers WeeklyPraise 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 Praise for I'd Know You Anywhere, My Love:"Young children adore pretending to be animals, and Tillman's insight into the wish to turn into another creature powers this book." -Publishers Weekly
