    ?There are days it?s a fence between me and the world, days it?s a whisper that can barely be heard. There are days it is broken, but broken can mend, and a heart that is closed can still open again.? Corinna Luyken's Book of Mistakes was one of my favorite picture bo...

    The author of The Book of Mistakes returns with another amazing picture book. This time she focuses on empathy and self-awareness as she speaks about the power of your heart. The heart here can be open or closed, small and hidden or ready to grow. It can separate you from others or inv...

    "There are days it is broken, but broken can mend, and a heart that is closed can still open again." Popular culture likes to perpetuate the narrative that our hearts are fragile. But really, our hearts are resilient. And Corinna Luyken helps us remember how strong we are because...

    Simplistic, yet dichotomously grandiose in its explanation of our inner workings, don?t discount My Heart for the older kid. They need to remember what it is to be human, to open and shut and begin again in love, too. ...

    Written in rhyme, Luyken is lyrical, evoking images of how the heart can manifest itself in known and unexpected ways. It?s the unusual written images that, of course, captured my attention. The first image is familiar: ?My heart is a window.? But what follows after the comma ...

    With beautiful and simple illustrations, this book speaks to everyone if not just young readers. One's heart changes, grows, closes, and opens. No matter what one's heart feels, one can always decide. The book conveys the importance of finding inner joy and self-acceptance. ...

    For most beings it beats out a cadence of life. It comes in all shapes and sizes. If broken, it may be mended. It's capacity for collecting (or not) is far greater than its physical size would indicate. We store many things in our hearts, some tiny and some enormous. An attached sig...

    What a beautiful book about a heart that can endure sadness, loss, and disappointment, but can rebound with love, joy, kindness, and courage. I love that Luyken reminds us that the condition of our heart is our choice. I would love to read what kids would say their hearts are. ...

    Can't express how much I love this picture book. Everyone needs to have both their positive and heavy feelings validated, and to be given hope, and this book is such a beautiful offering. ...

    Overall, I really like Luyken's work. I just think, in this book, she used imagery that a young child wouldn't really be able to unpack. If the book was billed for an older audience, the imagery would be really beautiful way of conceiving of the stirring of our hearts ...

    If I could give this book 10 stars, I would. This is probably my latest favorite picture book. I knew from the minute I picked this up, I'd love it. From the stunning, simple illustrations, which gave me goosebumps, to the heartbreakingly beautiful (and accurate) text, that had tear...

    In Luyken's signature illustration style, metaphors for the heart are depicted in a beautiful poem-- sometimes we hope, sometimes we hurt, sometimes we fly. Our hearts are open or closed. Our heart changes with each day. Absolutely lovely book for all ages, even adults. ...

    Very solid 3.5 While the concept might be above the very young, the "older" younger child should understand. However, lack of a traditional "action story" might turn some children off. The lack of color (mostly black & white and gray) with the exception of the yellow "heart/love" c...

    I found this picture book in a bookshop today. I can't stop thinking about it. It's beautifully illustrated, poignant and rich, and I want to read it with my future babies by a fireplace. This is one of the most honest picture books I've read (that sounded strange but it's true). ...
