CORETTA SCOTT KING – JOHN STEPTOE ILLUSTRATOR AWARD FOR NEW TALENT WINNER

This final, magnificent picture book from three-time Coretta Scott King Award winner and Newbery Honor author Patricia McKissack is a poignant and uplifting celebration of the joy of giving.


"Misery loves company," Mama says to James Otis. It''s been a rough couple of months for them, but Mama says as long as they have their health and strength, they''re blessed. One Sunday before Valentine''s Day, Reverend Dennis makes an announcement during the service-- the Temples have lost everything in a fire, and the church is collecting anything that might be useful to them. James thinks hard about what he can add to the Temple''s "love box," but what does he have worth giving? With her extraordinary gift for storytelling, McKissack--with stunning illustrations by Harrison--delivers a touching, powerful tale of compassion and reminds us all that what is given from the heart, reaches the heart.

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 3—Although he and his mama are poor, James Otis struggles to find something he can give the Temple family, who have lost everything in a fire. After his daddy dies suddenly, the boy and his mom lose their farm and move into a "run-down shotgun house." A flood further adds to their misery. Yet when Reverend Dennis announces the congregation will deliver "love boxes" to needy families for Valentine''s Day, the boy and his mother decide to provide gifts for the Temples. "Stitchin'' with a loving heart," mama turns her one treasure, a tablecloth, into an apron for Mrs. Temple. Considering several of his possessions unsuitable, James Otis finally decides to make a book for Sarah Temple. The delighted Temples receive their box with the congregation looking on. Their hearts filled with joy at having given to others, James Otis and mama return home to discover a love box has been delivered to them. Textured backgrounds that bleed to the edges and often include spreads form the backdrop for the folk-art illustrations rendered in mixed media and found objects. All the figures are elongated, and the brightest colors appear in a striking scene of the close-knit African American community walking to church dressed in their Sunday best. There are depictions of the modest neighborhood and touching close-ups of the boy and his mom in loving embrace and Sarah clutching her treasured book to her chest. VERDICT This story of the joy of giving despite one''s own needs is a must-have for group discussions of empathy. A treasure from a marvelous storyteller.—Marianne Saccardi, Children''s Literature Consultant, Cambridge, MA

What is Given from the Heart is a tale of compassion. James Otis and his mom have struggled ever since James’ father died a few months back. It was a struggle before his death, and now they’ve struggled even more. But when someone in their family’s church has a house fire, their Pastor asks the congregation to bring anything that they can to help the family. “What is given from the heart reaches the heart,” he tells the church.

What can James give to the little girl who lost everything? James barely has anything of his own. Is what he owns good enough for this girl? But James’ Mom shows him that even when you think you have nothing, there is always something you can do for another person. What is Given from the Heart is a beautiful and charming tale that shows readers the power of compassion, giving, and joy. This book serves as an excellent lesson on compassion for fellow people in the world. Reading this book will reach your heart.

The picture book was written by the late Patricia C. McKissack and illustrated by April Harrison. McKissack died in 2017, and this is her last published work. McKissack has roots in Tennessee. She was born in Smyrna and is a graduate of Tennessee State University in Nashville. She has written over 100 books in her life. April Harrison’s art is a strikingly beautiful rendering of the story. Harrison is a fine artist and her work has been featured across the united state. This is her first picture book.

This hauntingly beautiful book broke my heart and managed to fill it at the same time. Breathtaking in both the story and the illustrations, What is Given From the Heart has risen to the top of my favorite books for 2019.

James Otis is having a rough few months. He lost his father and his family has very little money. When another family loses all of their possessions in a fire, however, he discovers a way to bring them joy with a gift from the heart.

This moving story exquisitely conveys the messages of empathy and kindness and acts as a true celebration of faith, hope, and community.
