Wherever You Are

The New York Times Bestseller List

from the New York Times bestselling author of On the Night You Were Born -- Wherever You Are by Nancy Tillman

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

It’s been said that, once we become parents, we wear our hearts outside of ourselves. Our love really does follow our children wherever they go. In Wherever You Are, love takes shape and does just that. It is my wish that this book helps give your children a sense of confidence that there is nowhere in the world your love can’t find them.


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

In the green of the grass... in the smell of
the sea... in the clouds floating by...
at the top of a tree... in the sound
crickets make at the end of the day...

“You are loved. You are loved. You are
loved,” they all say.

Reviews for Wherever You Are:

Parenting: Early Years

"The illustrations that flow across each page of this tale are every bit as beautiful as the message: Never doubt that you’re number one with Mom."

Booklist

"Encourages an adult and child to snuggle affectionately together with a book is undeniable and may make this just the balm the doctor (or librarian) ordered."

Kirkus Reviews

"Parents and grandparents with a sweet tooth will likely lap up the latest in Tillman’s string of sentimental favorites."

Publishers Weekly

“[Tillman] has an unerring instinct for dramatic composition--in these pages, readers get the sense of spying on a secret world--and her potent combination of unapologetic sentiment, fantasy, photorealism, and painterliness has an undeniable allure.”
