Librarian's Quest: Out of HeArt Comes... | All Things Caldecott | Scoop.it
Margie Culver's insight:

There are those books which reach out and wrap themselves around you in a bear hug of warmth as soon as you see the cover.  Kelly Light's debut picture book, Louise Loves Art(Balzer + Bray, an imprint of HarperCollinsPublishers) is one of those books.  Louise, her little brother Art and one clever cat walk right into your heart, staying there even when the story is completed.
