Celebrate the ones you love with this adorable glittery heart-shaped board book!
You are the sun in my sky.
You are the apple of my eye.
You mean the world to me.
You make my heart so happy.
Each page of this adorable board book is die-cut in a different shape. With sweet, loving text, bright, happy illustrations from Susie Hammer, and glitter on every page, Happy Heart is perfect to share with someone you love!
This is a relatively small board book, which is shaped in the form of a heart. And that fits perfectly with the main theme—love. The poem inside is simple and as packed with love as the book. It's hard not to smile and feel warm and fuzzy while reading it.
The illustrations are very simple and basically create each page...and no, not every page is a heart. These radiate joy and happiness, making it easy for even the youngest readers/listeners to understand. Just picking it up made my family members smile, even the one who is an anti-glitter kid.
I can see little listeners getting a kick of carrying this one around and enjoying the glittery fun. The message inside is definitely one they'll never hear enough and enjoy.
