There's A Book

My Heart Is Like a Zoo by Michael Hall

A heart can be hopeful, or silly, or happy. A heart can be rugged, or snappy, or lonely. A heart holds every different feeling, and debut author-artist Michael Hall captures each one with a delicate touch.

For each feeling, the bold, graphic artwork creates an animal out of heart shapes, from “eager as a beaver” to “angry as a bear” to “thoughtful as an owl.” An accessible and beautiful debut, My Heart Is Like a Zoo is everything a classic picture book should be: honest, sincere, and speaking directly to even the very youngest child.

Michael Hall is a fantastic author/illustrator and this is the perfect book for this Valentine’s season. We’ve reviewed his most recent picture book Perfect Square and loved it. Take a look at this delightful video based on the book My Heart Is Like a Zoo:
