open or closed Hearts windows or slides But and complex metaphors about making choices to keep hearts open or closed Hearts as windows or slides But I got over that adults can talk to kids about these issues after all and maybe with older kids I just relaxed and loved it both for the writing and illustration You know maybe that title makes it clear It really is a book for all ages about Luyken s own heart Lovely illustrationsI wasn t as nad of the storytext own heart Lovely illustrationsI wasn t as nad of the storytext left me a bit cold Perhaps for me it s like the A Friend is Someone Who Likes You book one that is best read at the right age andor the right time to fully appreciate itthree and a half stars A very simple book that is hefty and powerful This is a simple rhyme for all ages young to old The artwork is so delicate and amazing It uses shadows and shapes hidden all over the place with a black white and yellow palate As we were reading this the kids would point out all the hearts they could find on the page This is about knowing you have control over your heart Some days its open and some its closed it can be small and it can grow The niece really njoyed this story and she gave it 5 stars while the nephew wasn t too keen and he gave it 3 stars. World out But some days it is wide open to the love that surrounds My Heart
