Review quote

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"""
