Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Ask any roomful of children what animals they would like to be and barrages of answers will greet you almost instantly. On the Night You Were Born author/illustrator Nancy Tillman takes that core connection and turns it into a cute, sweet book about parental love so deep that it can penetrate any disguise. Bound to be a gift.

Publishers Weekly
Young children adore pretending to be animals, and Tillman’s (The Crown on Your Head) insight into the wish to turn into another creature powers this book. The narrator, a handsome woman whose red clothing adds a spot of contrasting color to each spread, claims that infallible radar allows her to identify the child she loves no matter what animal form the child decides to adopt. “If early one morning, you put on your socks/ and declare, ‘For today, I’m a little red fox!’/ I’d say ‘My, my... that is quite a disguise!’/ But I’d know it was you by the gleam in your eyes.” Each verse subtly affirms an aspect of the child’s appearance (“your grin”; “your clever tiptoes”), and Tillman’s silky, digitally painted spreads show the woman interacting in joyful and inventive ways with each animal: crouched in a field with a baby pig, ice skating with bear cubs, and dancing with blue-footed boobies. Even kids who draw back from syrupy love language will enjoy the conceit that nothing can fool a mother. Ages 4–8. Agent: Cathy Hemming, Cathy Hemming Literary Agency. (Aug.)
Children's Literature - Shelli Horabik
It is true a Mother will know who her child is anywhere! In this book a mother describes how she would know her child’s features even if they turned into an animal of different sorts. The mother’s narrative goes through many different imaginary scenarios and in each one she recognizes her child by his eyes, chin and so on. The book conveys a spectacular exchange between a child’s imagination and a mother’s love. The illustrations make it seem as if the child has come to life in the forms of the animals, and those particular features that were talked about with each animal really stand out! Tillman’s writing and colorful illustrations combine to make a wonderful story about love come to life. Readers are sure to enjoy this delightful story. This will definitely be a must-have on many teachers’ bookshelves and in their classrooms. Reviewer: Shelli Horabik; Ages 4 to 9.

    A fox? A Koala? Perhaps a bear cub. Every child dreams at one time or another of being an animal; an owl that can fly, a giraffe that can run, or a raccoon that can scurry away. Whatever they desire, they need to know that they will always be loved. Author/illustrator Nancy Tillman has crafted a beautiful new book that reassures youngsters that they will always be recognized by their loved ones and more importantly, always loved.




    This sweet book, told in a very lyrical prose, begins by telling the reader:




    There are things about you quite unlike any other.../
    things always known by your father or mother./
    So if you decide to be different one day,/
    no worries...I’d know you anyway./

    The tale then goes on to imagine all sorts of animals the child might want to be, and how the parent would recognize him/her. It also encourages participation by the youngster by asking them to show off their various talents such as flapping their wings or roaring:




    And if one fine day you got bored and you said,/
    “Today I’m not me, I’m a lion instead”/
    even if I’d never heard it before, I’d know/
    it was you by the sound of your roar./
    Would you mind roaring a second or two?/
    See, without question, I’d know it was you./

    The author has had several bestselling children’s books and it’s a sure thing that I’d Know You Anywhere, My Love, will follow suit. It’s a lovely story, with striking artwork, and an important message that every child is unique and will always be loved. This book is a winner and one you will be asked to read over and over to that special child in your life.




    Quill says: A beautiful book, with soft, gentle prose and gorgeous illustrations that make this a perfect bedtime or anytime story.

    Highly Recommended - Gorgeous Pictures & Such a Sweet Message

    The first Nancy Tillman book I purchased for my son was Wherever You Are My Love Will Find You and he loved it. So I purchased this book hoping it would be just as good. It was even better! The pictures of the animals captivated my incredibly busy two-year-old son and the rhymes soothe him to sleep. He adores this book and the message just makes me melt. I would definitely recommend this book and this author.

    Nancy Tillman is one of my favourite author/illustrators.  Her pictures are realistic, beautiful and  well suited for framing.  Her writing skills dove-tail perfectly with her stunning visuals.  This book sends a message that both parent and child totally comprehend.  The unconditional love, the you are unique and mine, the I will love you no matter where or what you are, rings true on every page. 




    "There are things about you quite unlike any other.
    Things always known by your father and mother.
    So if you decide to be different one day,
    no worries...I'd know you anyway."




    Her gentle rhymes convey to the child his uniqueness and no matter what changes occur that his mother will recognize him and  love him no matter what.  Children will delight in the fact that if they choose to become a giraffe, a bear, or an owl that mother will always be there for them, loving them every step of the way, no matter what they may choose to become.
