Natick Artist and Author Creates a Message of Love, Peace, and Healing for Children

NATICK, Mass. - Dec. 8, 2020 - PRLog -- Artist and author Janis Luedke of Natick sees the discord roiling the country, and the negative effects it may have on not only adults, but children. Between the pandemic, the election, and the social justice protests, there's been no shortage of issues to divide people this year.

But her antidote is a simple one; an illustrated children's book with a message of love, peace and healing. The Hearts That Fell Out of the Sky tells the story of the Heart Heads, heart-shaped beings from another planet who visit Earth to shower its inhabitants with love, to help them learn how to "be in their hearts" with compassion for others.

Luedke, a Wellesley native, has a professional background as an interior designer and has also been a fine artist for many years, working in watercolors, pastels, and acrylic. Her book is lavishly illustrated with over thirty full color works she created to help tell the story.

"I hope that the children who meet the Heart Heads," said Luedke, "will listen to the love that comes from their hearts, and that they will remind their parents to do the same."

And the message she created with the book is resonating with its audience, as parents and grandparents alike read it to the children in their lives.

"This is a lovely reminder for children to live from their hearts and be the change we are hoping to create in the world," one reviewer of the book said on "There is wisdom in what the 'Heart Heads' have to say to our current world. It's not just good timing, this book is timeless," said another.
