Synopsis

The Big Hearted Book by Nicholas Allan

Babette and Bill are joined by a ribbon of hearts. They are always together through thick and thin. But when Babette falls ill, the two friends are parted and they are both broken hearted. Until they discover that even when they can't see the ribbon of hearts it is always there pulling them together. Warm, poignant and funny, this book is a wonderful celebration of friendship. A sensitive and beautifully told story written in association with the International Children's Heart Foundation that will touch anyone affected by illness. The mission of the International Children's Heart Foundation is to bring the skills, technology and knowledge to diagnose and care for children with congenital heart disease to developing countries. 'Endlessly inventive, Nicholas Allan knows just what appeals to young children.' Parents in Touch

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
