"Love Your Heart" is an adorable book and story. The illustrations are engaging, the colors are delightfully girly, lots of pretty pinks and purples, and the story is one that any one who has had an opportunity to perform in a talent show can relate to. What is my talent? What can I do?
"Love Your Heart" is a story of perspective taking, putting self in the shoes of another, recognizing a need and a way to meet that need by giving of self. "Love Your Heart" is a fun book to enjoy together, offering opportunities for my little girl to make some self-to-text and text-to-self comparisons and to perspective take.
The second book in Tim McGraw’s My Little Girl series is a heartwarming story of a little girl’s selfless act of kindness.
Tim McGraw and songwriter Tom Douglas once again join forces to write another book about the precocious Katie and her dad. Katie has many talents, but she wonders which one will win her school’s talent show. With the help of Dad and her faithful dog Palio, and after several amusing mishaps, Katie finally chooses one talent that includes Palio. But at the talent show, she decides to drop out of the contest to help her friend, showing kindness is the best talent of all. Katie’s proud dad reassures her that she did the best thing and that while he loves many things about her, he loves her heart most of all.
