Carrie was a child who loved to paint flowers.

Her heart tells her to paint, and she listens.

This leads to her adventure as an artist with a pink school bus who shares her love for color and flowers with the world.

I gifted this to my niece!!!

We read it together, and even though she’s only 3 she loved it!!! The “hidden” roses were perfect for her!!! Thank you!!!


I just sat down after receiving the book, A Flower in Her Heart. It is lovely.

The cover is beautiful, and the book even more wonderful. Each page is filled perfectly. The details feel like I am there with you. The love and warmth I felt as I was reading it was so encouraging.

I bought one for my granddaughter and one of my great niece. I will be placing another order.

From the heart, thank you! 


This book is so beautiful and such a treat to read!

My daughter absolutely loved it! Thank you for creating such a happy and meaningful story and art, Carrie!
