Synopsis

You and Me and the Wishing Tree by Nancy Tillman

We woke up in the usual way, but it was not a usual day. Out on the lawn, plain as could be, stood an orange wishing tree. I wish! I said. I wish! said you. And so our double wishes grew. Wishes are a magical part of childhood. Whether we wish on stars or blow out candles on a cake, our dreams matter. Nancy Tillman captures the wonder of wishes as only she can, with love.

Reviews

-Gorgeous, magical illustrations complement this ode to the love between a parent and child. The joyous excursion through the boy's imagination makes for a sweet bedtime read, giving both parent and child a chance to share wishes great and small. A delightful read for one-on-one sharing.- --School Library Journal

Praise for Nancy Tillman:

-This is soothing, visually attractive, and makes for a comforting bedtime read-aloud.- --Booklist on The Crown on Your Head

Tillman's mixed-media collages always have an air of surreal magic to them, a quality that especially befits this dreamy story of a mother's visit to a wish-granting tree with her child. --Publishers Weekly

Young children adore pretending to be animals, and Tillman's insight into the wish to turn into another creature powers this book. --Publishers Weekly on I'd Know You Anywhere, My Love
