Review: Little Hearts

Author: Charles Ghigna
Illustrator: Jacqueline East
Publisher: Red Comet Press
Ages: 3-6

Soft, delicate, watercolor-like, illustrations of woodland animals, trees and fields gently bring Ghigna’s words to life in this delicate reminder of a picture book, telling us that we can find hearts and love, all around us. Written in tender rhyme (best when read deliberately slowly), animal friends guide us through a peaceful, contemplative journey.

The illustrations are, in a word, lovely. This is a great book to snuggle up with, and get lost in the meditative state conjured up by the pictures and words. Explore the rich world created by Ghigna and East with your child; then, drift off to sleep.

A great bedtime book; a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift to keep in mind for an adult.
