Tuesday Tomes: The Crown on Your Head

Books, LocalMegan PeronaComment

“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 dragonflies wings..” Educational_Toys_Portland_The_Crown_On_Your_Head

The quote above begins the latest book by local author/illustrator, Nancy Tillman. Tillman is a master of crafting beautiful picture books that all say to a child just how much they are loved. This book is no exception. With rhyming prose, she describes an invisible crown that we are born with, one that gives us all unique value, and that we will always carry. I think this might be her best yet.
