The Heart and the Bottle
The Heart and the Bottle | Oliver Jeffers
4 posts | 9 read | 3 to read
There is a wonder and magic to childhood. We dont realize it at the time, of course . . . yet the adults in our lives do. They encourage us to see things in the stars, to find joy in colors and laughter as we play. But what happens when that special someone who encourages such wonder and magic is no longer around? We can hide, we can place our heart in a bottle and grow up . . . or we can find another special someone who understands the magic. And we can encourage them to see things in the stars, find joy among colors and laughter as they play. Oliver Jeffers delivers a remarkable book, a tale of poignancy and resonance reminiscent of The Giving Tree that will speak to the hearts of children and parents alike. Watch a Video

Sweet and subtle picture book about grief, with Jeffers‘ always amazing illustrations. My critique is that is could be too subtle for the picture book audience, and it is okay to say things straight out to kids and not dance around hard issues.

Annl His book The Incredible Book Eating Boy is one of my favorites! 4y

"Then one day something happened that made the girl take her heart out and put it in a safe place. However, after that it seemed that the world was emptier than before."
