I love the idea of setting limits for oneself in the creation of something. A color palette when quilting. A font design when writing. A set of words within a poem or story. Michael Hall set a goal to create the animals in his first book using heart shapes, and the result is heartfelt and thoughtful. We got our young reader friends got a signed copy for Christmas, and they wanted to read it right away. Our next project will be making our own heart-shaped critters, after they see Michael's catchy video at http://www.myheartislikeazoo.com/.
