We know our children are special, and now the incomparable Nancy Tillman expresses this universal feeling in the most touching of ways: Every child is born with a crown. The crown is everything that gives us unique value. Our crown will always be with us wherever we go, whatever we do.

 This was an adorable book and so much fun to read!  It rhymes, so that’s a bonus for me.  It also has gorgeous and eye catching illustrations that fill the pages completely.  They are bright and very beautiful.  My two year old will look at the book just for the pictures {definitely good!}.  
This book also has a fabulous message but I had to explain it to my kids because even my six year old wasn’t getting it.  I wouldn’t say that was really a real negative though because you should discuss books with your kids and this one definitely gives a great subject for discussion and I don’t think I’ll have to explain it to her again.   {The message I’m speaking of is in the description of the book.}
This is a medium length book, it only takes a few minutes to read without interruptions, but even if you discuss each page it doesn’t take real long to get through.  My two year old sits through reading it and that’s pretty rare.  My six year old doesn’t show as much interest in it but she’s learning to read and wants to read her ‘learn to read’ books instead.  I don’t think I can really say it’s the book she isn’t interested in, it’s just her wanting to learn to read her school books.  
I do highly recommend this one if your looking for a cute, touching, medium length, rhyming book for a child.
