The Heart and the bottle
by Oliver Jeffers
This is a beautiful tale about a girl who loses her Grandfather and how she deals with the pain by putting her heart in a bottle. The girl grows up with a heavy heart hidden in a bottle and a lost sense of wonder. Will she ever find it again?
This tale teaches children about death, loss and the pain it brings. Gently and beautifully written. This book is a ‘must have’ for all parents when teaching children about pain and loss.
