Product Description

Review

Praise for The Crown on Your Head:
 
"...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

I bought this as a gift for my granddaughter and hope that it inspires her to always be herself and proud of how wonderfully unique and special she is. The illustrations were just beautiful! I have not heard if she liked it but I my wish is that she did.

Format: Hardcover
This is hands down my favorite book to read to my little one at bedtime. The illustrations are stunning, and it is a beautiful story about how everyone is born with a special crown on their head. I hope as my little one grows older she'll love this book and remember that everyone has a crown, and "no one's is brighter, no one's is duller, it's only a crown of a different colour". Very good book to teach how we're all special in our own ways. It's a must buy baby gift for showers etc. Now that I see it's coming out in board book format though, I'd wait until the board book comes out.
