Overview

With its delightfully colorful illustrations and silly questions about love, Hearts (working title) is sure to win hearts of kids and parents, as every turn of an intricately-cut page brings them closer to the simple truth about love.

Where does love come from? Does it grow on a tree? Or swim in the sea? This collection of silly questions explains a complicated emotion in a fun, entertaining way that children can easily understand. Readers follow the book's intricately designed pages, which are similar in format to Accord's The Rainbow Book, to reveal a sweetly simple truth about love. As each die-cut page proposes another possible source, Where Does Love Come From? concludes with a declaration that readers likely already know . . . that "love comes from your heart."

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
The title is not the only question this offering elicits. Who is the audience? Is this no more than a book-size greeting card? Kirkova is listed as the illustrator of this ill-conceived product. Perhaps seeking to introduce the abstract concept of love to young readers, it serves only to confuse. After the title invites readers in and the book's die-cut cover tempts young fingers to explore, each double-page spread further poses questions. One spread with a forest of trees made up of heart-shaped leaves in greens and yellows asks, "Do you think it grows on a tree?" Most of the yellow leaves are die-cut to reveal one of the dominant colors on the following page. The page turn shows the yellow seen through the previous spread's openings are part of the sun and star on this space-themed spread. The question continues, "Or lights up the sky?" And so it goes, heart-shaped die cuts and all…through a garden, in the sea, blowing in the wind, etcetera. What adults will recognize as rhetorical questions may puzzle kids primed for an interactive experience. Most children view the heart as a symbol for love, and there are plenty populating the pages here. So is the answer always "yes"? The final spread fails to clarify: "You know where LOVE comes from… / It comes from your heart!" Huh? No question here—pass. (Picture book. 2-4)
