This is a story about love and loss, and how we lock our emotions because of loss, until everything in our life seems meaningless. The story ends with a beautiful message of letting go and finding a new life. ( )

this is such a lovely book - heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time.

This is a brilliant story about love and loss and a little girl who isolates her heart from the rest of the world.

Commuoversi con un libro per bambini?
Fatto. ( )

A young girl has an endless curiosity about the world, and is introduced to even further wonders than she can observe with her own eyes by a man - perhaps her father - who is shown reading books to her. But then the man disappears. This book is written with little text and so the exact details are vague, however, I took it that the man died. The girl puts her heart into a bottle, and much later in her life, attempts to free her heart from that same bottle. Through powerful metaphor, the human ability to compartmentalize the painful experiences of death, separation, and loss are shown in a way that young readers can see and understand. Written almost like a fairytale. Cool collages that include scientific illustrations. ( )
