A Flower In
Her Heart

The True Story of an Artist Who Bloomed

award winning a flower in her heart

An award-winning picture book that shares an inspiring story about the magic of listening to one’s heart and turning burdens into blessings.

Carrie was a child who loved to paint flowers. As she grows up, she stops painting until she is suddenly bedridden with a strange allergy to heat. 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.

With 40-pages with full color illustrations and questions to prompt discussion included in the back of the book, this is a great resource for families, schools, organizations and libraries!
