Born from the Heart by Berta Serrano


Born from the Heart by Berta Serrano

This book is suitable for children aged 3 and over. Every child is born from the heart, whether or not the mother gave birth to that baby. This poetic and magical parable celebrates the richness of family as Rose and Charlie embark on the search for the child they so desperately want. As Rose's dream gets closer to coming true, her heart grows and grows, until it bursts with happiness, laughter, and wonder when she finally kisses the beautiful face of her new baby. First time author Berta Serrano and her brother Alfonso Serrano are the author-illustrator team behind this warm and quirky love letter for Berta's adopted son.
