You Have My Heart
by Corinne Fenton & Robin Cowcher
Based on Parrot’s classification of the six emotions — joy, sadness, fear, anger, surprise and love — this book offers young readers the tools to describe their own feelings. It is also a simple, yet effective, message of love.
You have my heart
“A beautiful message of unconditional love and support, You have my Heart may bring a tear to your eye, or a smile to your face. A sensitive storybook that will resonate with children and the big people who read to them.”
— Brydie Wright, Creative Kids Tales
“The tripping lines of words will be a treat to read aloud to a child or class, and will encourage children to read it for themselves… This is a book to read and reread… Originally conceived as a Mother’s Day message, the book has much wider appeal, showing children that they are not alone in times of need. The illustrations with limited colour complement the words beautifully, using line drawings, greys and red to show the six different emotions felt by the girl, and using a red balloon to reflect the way the child is feeling.”
— Fran Knight, Boomerang Books
