All Because You Matter*


Author: Tami Charles


Illustrator: Bryan Collier



They say that matter is all the things that make up the universe: energy, stars, space… If that’s the case, then you, dear child, matter.” A mother shares with her son all the dreams, wishes, prayers, fears, and hopes that pour into the love they feel for their child and how very much it all matters. And that most of all – they matter. You and your young readers and listeners will be moved by this stirring, lyrical meditation – highlighted by Bryan Collier’s stunning artwork – on all the reasons a child matters so much and all the hopes and dreams that live within each and every child. Ages 4-8. 32pp.
