See a Heart Share a Heart by Eric Telchin –ADVISABLE

Telchin, Eric See a Heart Share a Heart 48 pgs. Dial, 2012. $10.39.  (Rating: G)
The author started taking photographs of hearts he saw in the world around him and posting them to his blog This book is a well-rounded collection of those, with matching words like “ Keep a heart” and “Catch a Heart”. Images of hearts as shadows, sidewalk cracks, or a snake curled up are eye catching and interesting.
This is the kind of book that can get students to think outside of the box. It’s so simple yet can inspire us to all see the world in a new way. This book could be used in a conjunction with a technology lesson using digital cameras and your own library blog. Students could search for a variety of intriguing hidden images in the library and surrounding school building –such as faces, animals, and more.
