Tillman feels that the most important message for children to receive is simply, "You are loved." And it's that message that is the focus of this, her newest book, Wherever You Are: My Love Will Find You. Once again, it is her turn of phrase that most captivates me: In the green of the grass...in the smell of the sea...in the clouds floating by...at the top of a tree...in the sound crickets make at the end of the day... "You are loved. You are loved. You are loved," they all say./// Phrases encourage children to grow, to try new things, to "march to the front" of their "own parade" and assures them that, no matter how far they go or what they do, they will be loved.
Though the words alone would convince me to buy, share and recommend this book, Tillman is also a gifted artist and her lovely work makes this book a visual treasure as well. Through the pages, a child (vaguely male, but one could possibly be persuaded that it is female) rides hippos, splashes in the surf with elephants, plays hide and seek with rabbits, shares a trampoline with a kangaroo and enjoys some quiet time with a pair of pandas.Read more ›
This book shares through magical pictures (again - not even the style of children's lit pictures that I usually like!) and wonderful words the rue story of parenting: Loving Your Child THROUGH and THROUGH. My two year old requests this book every night for reading and every night we find new things in the pictures to talk about and new words to say together. She listens CAREFULLY to the vows made while reading aloud to ALWAYS LOVE and send my love with her wherever she may go. It's beautiful.
I HIGHLY recommend this book for both adoptive and biological families. (We are both.) The story begins with the solemn statement: "I wanted you more than you will ever know" - something that couldn't be more true for both of our daughters.
