Book Review: "One Big Heart" A celebration of being more alike than different


One Big Heart: A Celebration of Being More Alike than Different

Linsey Davis, Emmy-winning correspondent for ABC News and author of The World Is Awake, brings us One Big Heart, A Celebration of Being More Alike than Different, a beautiful picture book that celebrates diversity as well as the things we all have in common.
From skin, hair, and eyes in a multitude of colors to different personalities and interests, God gave us all special traits and characteristics that make us uniquely ourselves. And we all have things in common too: like sharing fun and laughter on the playground, a sense of curiosity, big feelings, and so many other things that show how we are all more alike than we are different.
Combining lyrical rhymes and Lucy Fleming’s whimsical art, this inspiring story of inclusion and connection is the perfect read-aloud for kids ages 4 – 8.


My Review:
The first thing that pops out and grabs my attention is the colors used by the illustrator, Lucy Fleming!   I love bright colors and this book is full of bright colorful pages.  I love the heatr of the author, Linsey Davis.   She helps everyone understand we do have a lot in common no matter what!   I think it is so important for our children to see how we love and accept anyone even with differences.   The world is teaching everyone to be critical and compare instead of love and get to know.   This book can provide great discussions and personal discussions about how to love people who may be different then you.   

This book is a hard cover book!   It is perfect for those lower elementary ages.   It doesn't take long to read and all age groups can enjoy it.  

Thank you Zondervan for sending me this book for free in exchange for an honest review I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are my own.

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
