We know our children are special, and now, in The Crown on Your Head, 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.

EXCERPT

On the day that we met and I put you to bed,
I noticed a crown on the top of your head.
It was made up of sparkling, glimmering things.
Like moonlight, and fireflies, and dragonfly wings.

Reviews

Praise for Crown on Your Head, The

“...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.” —Children's Literature
