The Crown on Your Head by Nancy Tillman


The Crown on Your Head by Nancy Tillman

We know our children are special, and now, the incomparable Nancy Tillman expresses this universal feeling in the most touching of ways: Every child is born with a crown. The crown is everything that gives us unique value. Our crown will always be with us wherever we go, whatever we do. The Crown on Your Head is a perfect gift for baby showers, graduation, and for any other occasion to tell dear ones that they are loved.


...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.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
