1 BIG HEART

$17.99
More Info

A culture-rich picture book that proudly showcases the beauty of diversity while also celebrating all the wonderful things we 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.

Ready to celebrate all our likes and differences? So are we! And this diverse picture book--drenched in color and full of laughter and fun--will show you how.

One Big Heart is:

  • Written by Emmy-winning ABC News correspondent and The World Is Awake author Linsey Davis
  • A multiethnic, multicultural, multiracial children's picture book that recognizes our unique differences while celebrating how alike we are as well
  • An inspiring story of inclusion and connection
  • Written from a Christian worldview
  • The perfect read-aloud for kids ages 4-8
  • ABCs of Black History

    What's in a name? For one little girl, her very long name tells the vibrant story of where she came from -- and who she may one day be.

    If you ask her, Alma Sofia Esperanza José Pura Candela has way too many names: six! How did such a small person wind up with such a large name? Alma turns to Daddy for an answer and learns of Sofia, the grandmother who loved books and flowers; Esperanza, the great-grandmother who longed to travel; José, the grandfather who was an artist; and other namesakes, too. As she hears the story of her name, Alma starts to think it might be a perfect fit after all -- and realizes that she will one day have her own story to tell. In her author-illustrator debut, Juana Martinez-Neal opens a treasure box of discovery for children who may be curious about their own origin stories or names.
