In this deeply personal book, artist and author Ed Young explores twenty-six Chinese characters, each describing a feeling or emotion, and each containing somewhere the symbol for the heart. Through stunning collage art that interprets the visual elements within each character, Young uncovers layers of emotional meaning for words such as joy and sorrow, respect and rudeness. He invites children to probe the full range of their own emotions, and gives parents, librarians, and older readers a context for discussing ethics and for examining the silmilarities and differences between old and new, East and West. Voices of the Heart is a truly unique exploration—or as Young writes, “adventure”—into the different moods, and dangers and abilities of the human heart.
“This highly original tour de force will awaken children to the relation between language and thought, providing many hours of fascination and discussion.” –School Library Journal
