Hearts are everywhere, suggests this photographic book from Telchin, who created the Web site BoySeesHearts.com to showcase images of hearts he discovers in nature, urban areas, and in a spectrum of colors. Loose, heart-centric verse runs throughout (“Hold a heart/ Free a heart/ Find a heart”), thematically tied to the photographs. A snake, rubber band, and hose coiled into heart shapes join the words “twist a heart,” while floral hearts appear with the phrase “tend a heart.” Grainy hearts embedded in cracked sidewalks and a tiny heart-shaped discoloration on an autumn leaf might be overlooked “in the wild”: the subtlety of the images points to the value of being receptive to and perceptive of one’s environment. Ages 4–up. Agent: Joanna Volpe, New Leaf Literary & Media. (Dec.)
