Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Sieberh Minor’s artwork is simply stunning, but Siebert’s moon-and-June rhyme schemes annoyed me. Jan 07, Dana Murphy rated it it was amazing. I sat down today with my granddaughter and we read through it a couple times.

She really enjoyed the poem rhyming of the text, as did I. But mostly it was the illustrations by Wendell Minor that made the book. We read each page then would discuss the pictures. Pointing out the different objects in the pictures. I am very glad I was given the opportunity to become fans of both Diane and Wendell.
Fairly simplistic rhyming verse, presented in a beautifully illustrated format. Helps to show images of the “heartland” that are accurate and beautiful. Would be great to show others what rural life looks like if they were unfamiliar with it. Images remind you of a back country drive through the Midwestern heartland.
Jun 03, Stephanie rated it liked it. The heart of America is a place of growth, beauty, and hard work. It is a region defined by the people who make their lives there and work the land.
This book describes these characteristics through poetry and portrays them with paintings that look like sirbert were created with acrylic paint. I would recommend this book for anyone who would like to learn more about the United States. Jan 08, Madonna rated it really liked it. Heartland is a lovely book. It brought back so many memories for me of my growing up years in the Heartland of this great country! I grew up mostly in Missouri, but also Kansas and other parts of the Midwest.
The paintings speak so clearly to me. Thanks to Good Reads for the chance to read this book. I plan to pass it on to others who will love it as well. The pictures are quite nice even if they do pretty much depict the Heartland as being populated solely by white heatrland. The poetic text is just plain boring. Ziebert pleasant poem about the midwest as the heartland of the country. I support independent bookstores.

At the time, I was seated in a circle of chairs with my classmates and we were supposed to be reading from our Fun with Dick and Jane readers.
Miss Cottington reminded me that I should not daydream, but pay attention to my reading! My world has always been visual. Reading appreciation came to me later in life. By the time I was in fourth grade, I knew I would be an artist someday. I was praised for my drawing ability, and that gave me a heargland of self-esteem that nurtured my desire to excel. Thanks to my father, who was an avid outdoorsman, I learned to be a keen observer of nature.
We would sit for hours waiting for the fish to heartlanv or a squirrel to appear on a high branch in an oak tree.
My sixth-grade teacher, Mr. Gilkey, brought the art of the written word to me by reading aloud to our class the works of some of America’s greatest siebfrt.
Jack London was my favorite. I will never forget The Call of the Wild. Gilkey’s deep voice made the words come alive with vivid pictures of the Far North. It was at that moment that my visual world and reading came together.
In retrospect, it was that particular experience that forged my future as an illustrator of books! It was therefore a great pleasure for me to paint full-color pictures for a new edition of The Call of the Wild, published as a Scribner’s Modern Classic in the fall ofand to dedicate these illustrations to his memory.
Life has come full circle.
