In this newest collaboration by popular children’s book author Holly Bea and illustrator Kim Howard, children are reminded to appreciate every little thing in life from the early morning light to hugs to the freckle on a knee as a gift.

A young boy and his little sister awake at dawn, looking forward to a day of excitement and discovery at the beach. It’s so early the lighthouse on the point is still lit. As brother and sister play on the beach, swim in the surf, and explore the tide pools, each experience is a source of wonder.

A full-color project, brilliantly illustrated with light-filled paintings, Bless Your Heart reminds us that all of life is a blessing and a gift from the Creator.
