I Carry Your Heart With Me by E.E. Cummings and Mati McDonough
In I Carry Your Heart With Me, a heart-tugging interpretation of E.E. Cumming's beloved poem, artist Mati McDonough paints, scissors, draws, and collages to illustrate a mother's love. First published in 1952 in Complete Poems: 1904-1962 by E.E. Cummings, as "[i carry your heart with me (i carry it in)]," the powerful lyrical portrayal of love through nature, and in life, has lasted through the ages. The secret depths of this mommy's love for her baby is in the stars, the sky, moon, and sun - "the root of the root and the bud of the bud."
This simple but incredibly meaningful picture book, featuring a patchwork of skillfully childlike art, offers the perfect way to send love to your little ones on Valentine's Day. Say "I love you" by exploring the bounds of love, as imagined by Cummings, before bedtime or midday snuggle.
