Mom's Choice Awards 2011 Silver Award Recipient: Hearts Always Open is a realistic fiction picture book that tells the story of a very special elderly resident that lives in a community retirement center and the children who have come to visit with her, on a cold and snowy December afternoon. The open-hearted friendship that is shared between dear Mrs. Tully and the children allows for a lifetime of memories to come to life. Hearts Always Open is a book for all ages to read, and a book that speaks to the understanding and compassion that can present itself while bringing the young and the not-so-young together.

Editorial Reviews

Hearts Always Open shares a lovely story about the wisdom and warmth found in our young and old. Sharing memories of holidays past while creating new memories enriches each generation. Glenna Orr understands the power and potential of intergenerational friendships and shares that joy with us all. --Donna Butts Executive Director, Generations United

Hearts Always Open gently reminds us of the importance of friendship between the young and the not-so-young; of the way the creating of and sharing of memories forge a strong bond across generations. Mrs. Tully suggests that a blanket of snow will make the holidays just right. I suspect, however, that the open hearted friendship Mrs. Tully and the children so obviously share will be what does that! May we learn from them. --Sister Denise Wilkinson, SP General Superior, Sisters of Providence Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana
