Praise

New York Times bestseller
Pacific Northwest Bookseller Association Book Award

★ "Soothing, simple phrasing and masterful printmaking harness metaphors to make a heart’s complexity accessible to children just recognizing its many manifestations . . . Sensitive, stunning words and pictures speak directly to young hearts." —Kirkus, starred review

★ "This must-buy for librarians and teachers has myriad educational uses; it begs to be read aloud, and it is a masterful blending of text and illustration." —School Library Journal, starred review

"Rhyming verse and sweet-tempered artwork by Luyken explore childhood emotions through images of the heart . . .  Flashes of brilliant yellow illuminate smudgy black-and-white drawings, and heart forms can be found everywhere, in ironwork, tiny seedlings, and stars. The abstract nature of Luyken’s meditation will draw readers receptive to thoughtful examination." —Publishers Weekly
