The cyclical nature of day and night frames a heartfelt exploration of the shared experiences that bring us all together.
At the start of a day brimming with possibilities, a gentle narrator whimsically explores everything the day might bring, from work to play, and all the sweet moments in between, like watching clouds and seeing something grow. In the moment when day inevitably turns to night, we are reminded that “we are all just hearts beating in the darkness.” This quiet space serves as a reminder of our shared existence, the very core of what brings us together. As a new dawn continues the cycle, that truth is a strong and steady pulse beneath the rhythm of another busy morning.
In a story that is at once playful and poignant, Julie Fogliano masterfully combines simple, lyrical text and nuanced themes to create an inspirational exploration of perseverance, solidarity, kindness, and strength. Luscious illustrations by Cátia Chien accompany the soulful text. Cleverly emulating the cyclical nature of day and night, it emphasizes an even deeper message: through all of life’s ups and downs, there will always be light after darkness, and most importantly, we have each other—these other beating hearts.
