Wherever You Are My Love Will Find You

While browsing the bookshelves at Borders yesterday, I picked up a book that almost brought me to my knees with the power of its words. It touched my heart and soul like few books ever have!

This book is now at the top of my "essentials" list right along with my all-time favorite children's books, The Giving Tree and Love You Forever. It will be under the Christmas tree this year for all of my sons. I only wish M was here to recieve one from me, too. I miss him terribly and this book perfectly expresses my love for him and his brothers!

. . . I wanted you more than you’ll ever know,
so I sent love to follow wherever you go. . . .

Wherever You Are My Love Will Find You
Nancy Tillman

This book is simply but powerfully written and the illustrations are beautiful! Together the heartfelt words and alluring pictures create a book that will become many families' favorite read-aloud.

While sitting in the cafe at Borders, I read this book with tears streaming done my face. It is agelessly heartwarming and evokes the deepest feelings of a parent's love. 

I hope you will seek this book out at your local library or bookstore. It will be a magical read for you and your child no matter what their age!

  1. I, too, feel strongly towards "I'll Love You Forever", a staple in my read-to-young-uns basket. So I'll need to get these others you mention. Thanks!
