Review: Wherever You Are

Author & Illustrator:  Nancy Tillman

Telling our children that we love them is something that we as parents just do – over and over. The words, “I love you” simply pop out of our mouths often without much thought. It’s not that we don’t mean it, perhaps we just don’t know how to express our love in a more creative way. Especially as our children grow and mature. 

How can we show our children that they do carry our love with them each and every day?  From the first heart-wrenching experience of letting go that a parent and child experience to a time when they’re “all the way grown”, the loving images in this tender book show your children that…

Wherever You Are – my love will find you.

“And if someday you’re lonely,
or someday you’re sad,
or you strike out at baseball,
or think you’ve been bad…

just lift up your face, feel the wind in your hair.
That’s me, my sweet baby, my love is right there.

In the green of the grass… in the smell of
the sea… in the clouds floating by…
at the top of a tree… in the sound 
crickets make at the end of the day…

“You are loved. You are loved. You are
loved,” they all say.
