The Heart and the Bottle

Author: Oliver Jeffers

Recommended age group: 6-10 years

Description: A gorgeous book that is more vague about loss (showing an empty chair where once her dad sat) to explain death. To save herself from further hurt she places her heart in a bottle and wears it around her neck. She grows into adulthood very lonely and isolated, and it is not until she meets a young child who helps her bring her heart back where it should be and make herself feel whole again. *another book we use through our Camp Magic program for multiple age groups.
