A boy introduces the idea of spirituality in this upbeat, rhyming board book. Though his outward appearance—“two eyes, two ears,/ one mouth, one nose”—is what the boy sees in the mirror, he embraces the belief that “something else,” even more important, grows inside him. He describes his heart, mind, strength, and soul as “all these parts of me that you can’t hold or hear or touch or see,” and offers examples of how they play a part in his life. In one of several inaugural titles for young children from Grant (including Mud Puddle Hunting Day and a pair of board books in the Knowing My God series), the brief text is inspired by Mark 12:30 and serves as a jumping off point for exploration of an often difficult-to-grasp concept. Tugeau’s sunny scenes of common family and childhood activities provide a sense of realistic accessibility for readers. Ages 3–6. (Oct.)
