The latest picture book from illustrator-author Nancy Tillman is an important reminder for both adults and kids alike: You’re Here for a Reason.

you're here for a reasonYou’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.

A beautiful book to give to any child — You’re Here for a Reason is an important reminder that even when things go wrong, it’s not the end of your story. That good can come from bad; that things do get better. That life has more in store for you than you realize.

More than any other picture book I can recall, the message of You’re Here for a Reason resonated most strongly with my adult self. It’s the kind of book I want to give to other adults in my life (and teens, too!), to remind them that even in the most difficult times, there is a reason for them to exist on this earth. That they are loved and cared for and important; that they matter — and, as all of Tillman’s books demonstrate — that they are loved.

You’re Here for a Reason is in stores now.
