As well as authors such as Mo Willems, Lauren child and Ed Vere, Oliver Jeffers is way up there in my picture book hall of fame.
‘The heart and the bottle’ by Oliver Jeffers, is a beautiful story of a girl who’s curious imaginative world fades after the loss of someone very close to her. She decides to put her heart in a bottle to protect it from getting hurt again, but soon realises that it cannot stay in there forever.
This lovely well thought out book, tackles a difficult subject in a delicate and moving way. It reminds us all, big or small that in order to LIVE we have to FEEL.
