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

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

Praise for Nancy Tillman:

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

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

A beautiful tribute to the uniqueness of every child. Kirkus Reviews on On the Night You Were Born
