Join us as we celebrate a new picture book written and illustrated by Olympia writer and artist, Corinna Luyken! Bring your kids for a special storytime at Browsers. We will have snacks, an art activity, a raffle for original art and a copy of the book. Corinna will also be on hand to sign copies of her books!
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, My Heart empowers all readers to listen to the guide within in this ode to love and self-acceptance.
From a recent review: “Soothing, simple phrasing and masterful printmaking harness metaphors to make a heart’s complexity accessible to children just recognizing its many manifestations.” Read the whole Kirkus review.
