We’re not all the same. Thank goodness we’re not.
Life would be boring, and I mean… a lot.
And so, when we’re born, we’re supplied at the start
with our own bells and whistles to set us apart.
Think of your bells as the things you do best
things tucked away in your own treasure chest.
Part of growing up is discovering—and embracing—what makes us unique. From different abilities to different personalities, we are all wonderfully made with our own bells and whistles.
Once again, New York Times-bestselling author and artist Nancy Tillman takes a universal truth and makes it accessible for readers young and old.
"Tillman’s latest celebration of children’s unique qualities and talents pictures kids in various pursuits, joined by animals that often take part in the fun. ... Tillman emphasizes the importance of perseverance in discovering and honing one’s skills. ... She provides an ethnically diverse cast of children, and includes a young swimmer with a developmental disability. " —Publishers Weekly
Praise for Nancy Tillman:
"Her potent combination of unapologetic sentiment, fantasy, photorealism, and painterliness has an undeniable allure." —Publishers Weekly
Praise for On the Night You Were Born:
"This is one of those rare baby books that should make both skeptics and sentimentalists of all ages happy." —Publishers Weekly
Praise for I'd Know You Anywhere, My Love:
"Young children adore pretending to be animals, and Tillman's insight into the wish to turn into another creature powers this book." —Publishers Weekly
