In Little Books with Big Hearts

The Shape of my Heart

Shape of my Heart book cover

This is one of my favourite books by Mark Sperring. A tender book about the shape of love that’s perfect bedtime reading for littlies and a lovely gift idea for new parents.

Mark’s gentle and reassuring rhyming text encourages you to pause at each brightly coloured page to explore all the shapes in our world.

Little fingers will want to point out all the familiar objects in Alys Paterson’s bold illustrations.

“This is the shape of the moon.
And these are the shapes of the stars…
And this is the shape I love you with.
This is the shape of my heart”.

Yep, gets me every time! A bedtime lullaby wrapped with love.
