Publisher Comments:

. . . I wanted you more than youll ever know,

so I sent love to follow wherever you go. . . .

Love is the greatest gift we have to give our children. Its the one thing they can carry with them each and every day.

If love could take shape it might look something like these heartfelt words and images from the inimitable Nancy Tillman. Here is a book to share with your loved ones, no matter how near or far, young or old, they are.

Review:

"As a child frolics in a magical version of the natural world, the narrator coos her enduring parental love: 'I wanted you more/ than you ever will know,/so I sent love to follow/ wherever I go.' The child, of neutral ethnicity and indeterminate gender (thanks to an orange bucket hat and compositions that always show him or her in profile or from behind) is one lucky kid: there's a piggyback ride on a hippo, apple-picking with the help of an albino giraffe, a park bench chat with pandas, and a snooze that literally entails lying down with the lambs. Tillman's (On the Night You Were Born) digital artwork teeters of the edge of saccharine, and she's too fond of dancing blobs of lights. But she has an unerring instinct for dramatic composition--in these pages, readers get the sense of spying on a secret world--and her potent combination of unapologetic sentiment, fantasy, photorealism, and painterliness has an undeniable allure. As with her other books, the real audience is probably grownups looking for a misty-eyed interlude. Ages 4 — 8. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

I gave this book to my daughter. On each page I attached a photograph of her growing up. It was a wonderful engagement gift.

I am a huge Nancy Tillman fan and was patiently waiting for this book to come out. It is one of the sweetest stories from a mother to her child. It makes a great new baby, birthday, or graduation day book. I've tried to come up with a way for this book to be fitting to give to someone who is not your child, but it really doesn't work. It's so very sweet and personal. Every mother should have this book on her child's bookshelf.

A touching book on the love we parents always feel for our kids. The illustrations are fun and whimsical, paired perfectly with the narrative. Even my 2 year old daughter understood that love is always.
