a wonderful children's book

Wherever You Are My Love Will Find YouWherever You Are My Love Will Find You by Nancy Tillman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


We got this book from the library, and it caught me by surprise how much I loved it. Vivi likes it too, but she can't understand it on the same emotional level as me, so I am definitely the one who requests it at story time. I tear up every time we read it, which is somewhat rare for me. I am a crier in long books and movies but not so much in commercials and kids' stories.


Here are some of my favorite excerpts:
I wanted you more
than you ever will know,
so I sent love to follow
wherever you go.

It's high as you wish it. It's quick as an elf.
You'll never outgrow it...it stretches itself!

So climb any mountain...
climb up to the sky!
My love will find you.
My love can fly!

And if someday you're lonely,
or someday you're sad,
or you strike out at baseball,
or you 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.

If you're still my small babe
or you're all the way grown,
my promise to you is you're never alone.

You are my angel, my darling,
my star...and my love will find you,
wherever you are.

You are loved.
