"A good book has no ending."
Author and Illustrator: Nancy Tillman
Nancy Tillman is one of my favourite author/illustrators. Her pictures are realistic, beautiful and well suited for framing. Her writing skills dove-tail perfectly with her stunning visuals. This book sends a message that both parent and child totally comprehend. The unconditional love, the you are unique and mine, the I will love you no matter where or what you are, rings true on every page.
"There are things about you quite unlike any other.
Things always known by your father and mother.
So if you decide to be different one day,
no worries...I'd know you anyway."
Her gentle rhymes convey to the child his uniqueness and no matter what changes occur that his mother will recognize him and love him no matter what. Children will delight in the fact that if they choose to become a giraffe, a bear, or an owl that mother will always be there for them, loving them every step of the way, no matter what they may choose to become.
