Heart to Heart

Illustrated by Steve Bjorkman.
Houghton Mifflin, 1995.

“As in Seeds, this author-illustrator team has captured a friendship glowing with warmth and creativity…[this] Valentine story about friendship is much more satisfying than those that try to bring adult themes of ‘true love’ to a child’s level. Shannon’s tale may inspire children to document their memories of their own special relationships.” SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

“Squirrel glues together a collage of memorabilia of the many good times the two pals have shared—thus creating a unique valentine that deeply touches Mole. Frustration, exhilaration, exasperation, and inspiration are all conveyed with charm and humor as caring sentiment and thoughtfulness emerge from the clutter of Squirrel’s preparations.” BOOKLIST
