Staff Reviews

“My heart is a shadow, a light, and a guide. Closed or open…I get to decide.”

Corinna Luyken is one of the most exciting illustrators to appear in the past few years, and this book—with its perfectly simple text—shares a message we could all stand to hear: your heart can guide you if you let it; love can be shared if you’re open to it, and it’s never too late to change. It’s an affirmation and a love letter, and the ideal gift to share with your loved ones, young or old.

— Bethany Strout, Director of Buying


From the author-illustrator of The Book of Mistakes comes a gorgeous picture book about caring for your own heart and living with kindness and empathy.

My heart is a window. My heart is a slide. My heart can be closed...or opened up wide.

Some days your heart is a puddle or a fence to keep the world out. But some days it is wide open to the love that surrounds you.

With lyrical text and breathtaking art, My Heart empowers all readers to listen to the guide within in this ode to love and self-acceptance.
