Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A mother's unconditional love Nancy Tillman is one of my favourite author/illustrators.  Her pictures are realistic, beautiful and  well suited for framing.  Her writing skills dove-tail perfectly with her stunning visuals.  This book sends a message that both parent and child totally comprehend.  The unconditional love, the you are unique and mine, the I will love you no matter where or what you are, rings true on every page.  "There are things about you quite unlike any other. Things always known by your father and mother. So if you decide to be different one day, no worries...I'd know you anyway." Her gentle rhymes convey to the child his uniqueness and no matter what changes occur that his mother will recognize him and  love him no matter what.  Children will delight in the fact that if they choose to become a giraffe, a bear, or an owl that mother will always be there for them, loving them every step of the way, no matter what they may choose to become.

Editorial Reviews

Young children adore pretending to be animals, and Tillman's (The Crown on Your Head) insight into the wish to turn into another creature powers this book. The narrator, a handsome woman whose red clothing adds a spot of contrasting color to each spread, claims that infallible radar allows her to identify the child she loves no matter what animal form the child decides to adopt. 'If early one morning, you put on your socks/ and declare, "For today, I'm a little red fox!"/ I'd say "My, my... that is quite a disguise!"/ But I'd know it was you by the gleam in your eyes.' Each verse subtly affirms an aspect of the child's appearance ('your grin'; 'your clever tiptoes'), and Tillman's silky, digitally painted spreads show the woman interacting in joyful and inventive ways with each animal: crouched in a field with a baby pig, ice skating with bear cubs, and dancing with blue-footed boobies. Even kids who draw back from syrupy love language will enjoy the conceit that nothing can fool a mother.
