I’d Know You Anywhere, My Love (new kid’s book)

Children love to dream. Their imaginations can take them on wild adventures; transporting them to far-off places and allowing them to envision grand scenes.  But, ultimately, no matter where their dreams lead them, their parents are there every step of the way. In I’d Know You Anywhere, My Love, best-selling author Nancy Tillman underscores parents’ steadfast devotion, while celebrating the dreamers.
