Love Your Heart: A Review

Even timagehough I am surrounded by blue, I love stories about pink.  The little boys in my house thought that this was a cute book.  The illustrations beautifully capture precious conversations and the unique personality of little Katie, the main character.

Love Your Heart by Tim McGraw and Tom Douglas is a meaningful book that starts out as a conversation between Katie and her dad.  Katie wants to find out what her talent is, and use it in the school talent show.  Never quite content with her chosen talent, she still manages to put a routine together.  However, the beauty of the story is that her real talent is revealed in the way she helps another little girl perform at the show.  Afraid to disappoint her dad, she seeks his approval.  Katie discovers that it isn’t the “things” she does that make him love her, it is her heart. 

Like a good book should, Love Your Heart provides an excellent avenue through which to have a meaningful conversation with your child, pointing out how unique God made them and the talents that can be used for His purposes!
