Read full description of the books The Crown on Your Head:I am a teacher in a state where standardized test preparation has become an art and science. Needless to say, the children are beaten down as they prepare to take the tests in late Spring. I have read this book to my elementary students before they take the test to inspire them to believe in themselves, and that they are more than a test score. My students have responded very positively to the book (even 5th graders!). I also gave the students paper crowns from a party store after I read the book.
In preparation for a parent event at school I started to do some research on the symbolism of the animals and colors in the illustrations. This book is packed with psychological and spiritual symbolism. Don't dismiss this as a trite children's book. The animals featured in the pictures were chosen on purpose. Each of the animals represents personal or spiritual attributes that contribute to a happy and fulfilled life. The zebra symbolizes protection of loved ones and compassion. The butterfly represents the soul. The crown is made of "...moonlight and fireflies, and dragonfly wings," to represent spiritual awakening to one's true nature. This book is a road map for personal happiness.
Read information about the authorNancy Tillman created her first book, "On the Night You Were Born," to convey to children at an early and impressionable age, "You are the one and only ever you." Since then, Nancy has written and illustrated several bestselling books. She also illustrated It's Time to Sleep, My Love, with Eric Metaxas. Together, Nancy's books have sold in the millions. A former advertising executive, Tillman now writes and illustrates full-time.
Whether she is creating books that remind children of their own unique wonder, or teaching life lessons through an accident prone cat named Tumford, all of Nancy's books feature one important message. You are loved. She lives in Tualatin, Oregon.
