Wherever You Are Book GIVEAWAY

Book of the week GIVEAWAY: Wherever You Are My Love Will Find You by Nancy Tillman

Why we love this book:

This book is magical! Both the lyrical, rhyming words and the fantastical paintings are magical.  The message is quite simple, “I wanted you more than you ever will know, so I sent love to follow wherever you go.” A message that all children need hear over and over again! “In the green of the grass . . . in the smell of the sea . . . in the clouds floating by . . . at the top of the tree . . .  in the sound crickets make at the end of the day. . . You are loved. You are loved. You are loved, they all say.”

Wherever You Are Book GIVEAWAY

The sweet phrases encourage children to climb tall mountains, go out on a limb, dance until they’re dizzy, paint ’til they’re blue because, “There’s no place, not one, that my love can’t find you.”

Wherever You Are Book GIVEAWAY

This Mother’s Day, give yourself a treat. Grab a tissue and read Wherever You Are My Love Will Find You. It will be hard to find a another book that so sweetly expresses how much we Mommy’s love our little babes (even if they’re way grown).

This book is an absolutely wonderful baby shower gift. Long after the wee ones have grown out of their bottles, toys and onesies, Mommy can read Wherever You Are My Love Will Find You and both Mommy and child can revisit the magical message of Mommy’s unconditional love.

I Love my Mother for being such a good Mom, she was always there when we came home from school. She cooked us yummy meals and always had her ears open and was ready to listen then her kind words would help guide us along our way.

I love my mom because she taught me to love to read and tells me she loves me every time she talks to me. And now she is an amazing Nana to my two girls!

My Mom has always been there for me when I’ve needed her. She is also an awesome Grandma. We have had many fun times and adventures together.

My mom has always been a great mom. I had a wonderful childhood because I had wonderful parents. Plus she is fiercely loyal — I know I always have an ally in my mom no matter what happens!

I love my mom’s sense of humor. Also, she has a wonderful sense of language and makes up some really cute kids’ songs!

Now that we are Moms, doesn’t it make all the special little things about our own mother’s more important!
