What the Heart Knows: Chants, Charms, and Blessingsand#160;isand#160;aand#160;collection of poems to provide comfort, courage, and humor at difficult or daunting momentsand#160;in life.and#160;It conjures forth laments, spells, invocations, chants, blessings, promises, songs, and charms. Here are pleas on how to repair a friendship, wishes to transform oneand#8217;s life or to slow down time, charms to face the shame of a disapproving crowd, invocations to ask for forgiveness, to understand the mysteries of happiness, and to bravely face a dark andand#160;different world. These words help us remember or grieve; they bolster courage and guard against evil; they help us celebrate and give thanks. This elegant giftand#160;book also includes a red ribbon for readers to mark their favorite poems.
Poet extraordinaire Joyce Sidman won the Newbery Honor Medal for Dark Emperor and Other Poems of the Night and continues to write poetry for children that has been called "fresh," "inspiring," and "accessible" to her young audience. She is intrigued by the idea of "words of power"and#8212;chants and charms that were once believed to have real influence in everyday life. Caldecott Honor-winning Pamela Zagarenski's beautiful art capturesand#160;a world ofand#160;emotion and the essence of Sidman's words.

Review:

"Nye (Honeybee) presents an anthology of poets under the age of 25, each of whom contribute four poems. The poets chiefly employ free verse and utilize intensely personal material, but these are their sole similarities. The poems cover territory spiritual and saccharine, philosophical and experimental, angry and irreverent ('do you think/ if you left your house/ emily dickinson/ your poems would have titles?'). Some writers are concerned with excavating the past, contemplating death and illness, dissecting class divides, and questioning feelings of displacement, be it geographical, emotional, or cultural (Amal Khan, born in Pakistan, writes, 'They have called me subcontinental,/ Ethnic and oriental — / Suffering and my creed — / It is a romantic thing indeed'). Several exhibit a delicacy in the handling of memory and attention to detail; 'She collages her disasters/ by finding her own feelings in the/ magazine faces,' writes Ben Westlie. While the poems don't necessarily break new ground, the collection is gripping and provocative in its portrayal of vastly different lives and experiences, strong sense of place, and sheer exuberance. Ages 12 — up. Here's a selection of books celebrating all that moms do for their children — and vice versa." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

About the Author

Naomi Shihab Nye was so depressed on her twentieth birthday that she refused to celebrate. She thought childhood was now behind her (wrong). She called writer Jack Kerouac's widow, Stella, in Florida to say she was thinking of Jack (they have the same birthday). Stella invited her to come down and visit. Things improved from then on.
