Reading: The Heart And The Bottle


This has to be the most poignant and heartfelt children’s book¬†my son¬†currently has in his small library.

Funnily enough, it was given to me by my good friend Gutsy long before having Fin was a glimmer of an idea. With so few words and an array of sigh-inducing drawings, Jeffers is able to weave a moving story about the journey of a little girl’s heart and how she was able to find it again.

If there’s one book you need to give a girlfriend who has been through hard times and back with you, it’s this one. It’ll make for a lovely book in her child’s collection in the future, trust me.
