The Crown on Your Head Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"Tillman (On the Night You Were Born) continues her project of nurturing children's self-esteem, creating a cascade of dreamlike spreads to accompany verses assuring them that 'he world is a wonderland waiting for you.' Her familiar brand of atmospheric, digitally created images show children who wear crowns 'made up of sparkling, glimmering things/ like moonlight and fireflies, and dragonfly wings.' These children are not the only ones who wear a crown; every child has one, Tillman explains: 'No one's is brighter, no one's is duller./ It's only a crown of a different color.' Tillman's montages begin with an infant and toddlers, before showing older children perching in a tree house, riding a cheetah, leaping with gazelles, and wearing a cape made of butterflies that come to life and flitter away. 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. Tillman's affirmations will please her loyal audience: 'Blink three times and... there you are!/ You are twinkling, little star!' Ages 4-8. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Review:

"...this is soothing, visually attractive, and makes for a comforting bedtime read-aloud." Booklist

Review:

"Tillman adds another dreamy volume to her collection of self-esteem-building titles." School Library Journal

Review:

"Parents and grandparents will love to read this aloud to their little ones..." Kirkus Reviews
