Her fresh and whimsical design makes an enticing vehicle for her advice.

I Say:

4 stars

How to Mend a Heart is an adorable children's book. The illustrations are simple and sweet, and the idea of mending a heart in the same way you'd sew or patch up a beloved toy was cute. The book is pretty light on text, and written on a very accessible level. My first grader was able to read this without any difficulty. He and my preschooler both really enjoyed the story and the pictures. It's the kind of book kids will want to read over and over again.

A cute, fun Valentine's childrens book that my 6 and 3 year olds both liked.

Just So You Know:
I received a free review copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. How to Mend a Heart is now available.
