The perfect gift book for all of your loved ones! This lyrical, gorgeously illustrated picture book celebrates creativity and a family's love.​

I drew a heart, and another one after... The hearts filled the pages, spilled over the edges, all these hearts that were in no way the same…

 A little boy spends the day drawing hearts—wavy hearts, wiggly hearts, wide hearts and tiny hearts, broken hearts and polka-dotted hearts—and each heart a reminder of a favorite memory: dancing, kite flying, first steps, and more.

This poignant and lyrical book with vibrant illustrations celebrates a multigenerational family, creativity, and love.
