Synopsis: Mattie Stepanek's fourth collection of poetry is a joyful "thank you" for life. In Celebrate Through Heartsongs, Mattie conveys the message that there is always a reason for happiness-whatever one's life circumstances. While acknowledging his own grief-at the loss of his three siblings and in living with a rare form of muscular dystrophy-Mattie can also see that to live fully, one must "celebrate life, every day, in some way." In this new collection, Mattie finds dozens of ways to celebrate. In sections titled "Celebrate Nature," "Celebrate Thoughts and Dreams," "Celebrate Special Days," "Celebrate Life," and "Celebrate Everyday Heroes," Mattie says thank you time and again. Beauty and joy abound, as long as you know how to look at life. Open this book and understand that no one is without the opportunity to celebrate, through Mattie's Heartsongs and your own. Jerry Lewis: My kids always amaze me,but none more than Mattie Stepanek, whose poetry reflects a heart and mind that soar beyond his 12 years. Bookseller Inventory # 042245
