How to Mend a Heart

We rated this book:


A little child had his stuffed toy broken, and is crying. To mend his toy/heart, it takes a lot of thread, or yarn, a lot of sewing activity, a lot of tools, lots of patches, and a gently, loving hand.

You have got to be patient, as stitching can take a long time, and may take up to an entire spool of thread to finish the mending. Another thing that can be very useful is the help of others, if you run into problems. And once you mend something, you may need to work on it again, or find that once is enough. The most important thing is to never give up, because the more you work on something the stronger and bigger it may become.

I like the pictures in this book. They were big and colorful and showed a lot of children helping out with the mending. Everyone’s face seemed so nice and gentle. I also like that the book said to never give up, this is something I tell myself and others all the time when a task seems too difficult.
