You're here for a reason. If you think you're not I would just say that perhaps you forgot...a piece of the world that is precious and dear would surely be missing if you weren't here. If not for your smile and your laugh and your heart this place we call home would be minus a part. Thank goodness you're here! Thank goodness times two! I just can't imagine a world without you. Not only are we loved, but we also matter. Once again, Nancy Tillman takes a universal truth and makes it accessible for readers young and old, as children and animals interact with acts of kindness.
Nancy Tillman is the author and illustrator of the bestselling picture book On the Night We Were Born, as well as The Heaven of Animals; The Spirit of Christmas; and the New York Times-bestsellers, I'd Know You Anywhere, My Love; Wherever You Are, My Love Will Find You; and The Crown on Your Head. She also created the mischievous cat Tumford from Tumford the Terrible and Tumford's Rude Noises, and illustrated It's Time to Sleep, My Love by Eric Metaxas. Nancy's mission in creating her books is to convey to children everywhere that "You are loved." She lives in Portland, Oregon.
