From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-5-Lovely, light-filled naturalistic paintings are the highlight of this quixotic story. The little girl longs to be an artist like her grandmother, who tells her that she will have to first find her "heartsight." Defined in rather vague terms, this abstract attribute seems to be enhanced by sensory experiences and a love of nature. The youngster and the woman observe birds, butterflies, peas growing on the vine, raspberries, tadpoles, and how the light interacts with these elements of nature. The two then create art together while Grandma shares her unique blend of life wisdom and creative insight. After the girl draws a picture of an angel that incorporates several keen observations, Grandma exclaims that she has "found her heartsight!" The story ends with the now-grown girl holding her first published book and fondly remembering her grandmother's inspiration. However, the narrative suffers from the confusing shifts from the present to the past. The use of varied typefaces to demarcate transitions in the story also detracts from the book's effectiveness. The illustrations far outshine the text in this mixed effort from a talented artist.
