9781250056269: You're Here for a Reason

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.

Every person matters. Here, national-bestselling and beloved author Nancy Tillman shows readers how each of us fits into life's big picture, and how the world would be incomplete without you in it.

About the Author:

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.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 2—Tillman's latest examines the struggle humans have with the idea of "purpose." She speaks as though addressing a child, repeating the refrain "you're here for a reason" and explaining that good things happen to others because of the child. Her answer to this life question may be unsatisfactory or too simplistic for some. Nevertheless, she fashions it into an encouraging sentiment that gives peace of mind. To evoke this sense, Tillman illustrates children mingling with animals in a vibrantly colored, dreamlike realm. As usual, her characteristic, almost photographic, digital and mixed-media paintings complement the soothing cadence of the text and beautiful rhyme. Goodwill spreads from page to page in the shape of a kite and a ball, showing how actions affect the world. Tillman frames her lovely poem with the idea of a puzzle, starting the verse that reads, "If not for your hands and your eyes and your feet,/the world, like a puzzle, would be incomplete" and ending with an image of a globe made up of puzzle pieces, depicting the paintings in the book.. It may not be obvious, but every person is a piece required to form the whole. VERDICT Fans of Tillman's previous titles will want to get this one as well; another ideal bedtime story for children and guardians to share.—Rachel Forbes, Oakville Public Library, Ontario, Canada
