In 2009, Eric Telchin noticed a heart in a pool of melted ice cream, and hearts have followed him ever since. He launched boyseeshearts.com as a forum to share his "found" hearts, and an Internet phenomenon was born.
This enticing book pairs Eric's photography with short, poignant text to create the ultimate gift for anyone looking to lend, mend, or charm a heart. The simple message of being open to seeing hearts and finding love is one that will resonate with readers of all ages. Anyone can see hearts; it's just a matter of remembering to look for them.

What an amazing book with a beautiful message! I have been following Eric Telchin and Boy Sees Hearts for a few years now, and I am so thrilled that this concept has been turned into a book... and just in time for the holiday season. I cannot wait to pick up my copies and share them with all my loved ones. Seeing hearts everyday, and sharing with those I love!
Eric Telchin has created a wonderful book! Ever since I've read it, I've been seeing hearts everywhere. It's amazing how many hide out in the world around us! Share this as a gift with someone who needs some love and friendship. I know I'm giving it out a lot this holiday season!
Reminded of the saying, ‘stop and smell the roses’, See a Heart Share a Heart, is a beautiful comparison to this sentiment. Each page has captured a heart that is found in a folded leaf, paint drips, a butterfly’s shadow, and a shell on a beach, just to name several. Captions attached to each heart are thought provoking and the illustrations are striking. Eric Telchin’s message throughout his inspirational book is: Hearts bring love. Readers will enjoy taking a moment to stop and See a Heart Share a Heart.
Bought to read to my pre-k class. Not really readable. Photos are nice but appear produced. Not a favorite
What a wonderful gem of a book! Genuine, and inspired. The perfect book for all ages children and grandparents alike. It makes for a great gift; christmas, birthday, & valentine's day! I purchased a copy for everyone I know and now a little more of the world is seeing hearts!
This book offers a truly beautiful perspective on the world. The author finds hearts in places where where most of us wouldn't bother to look-- right in front of us, every day. I love the presentation of the photos-- clear, uncluttered, almost like a little museum in your hands. I'm so impressed with this book that I'm going to pick up a few more as gifts- one for my 10 year old neice, one for a friend who's a photographer, and one for my sister who likes hearts.
