The Heart and the bottle by Oliver Jeffries is a book about a young girl who loses her father and how she puts her heart in a bottle to keep it safe. It goes through the young girls feelings before ultimately over time she gets her heart back. It takes a young girl to make her realise that she cannot lock away her emotions forever. This is a significant book which looks at unwelcome realities such as death, loss, life, coming of age and acceptance. I believe this book could be suitable for children in both KS1 and KS2 as it focuses on the harsh realities that some young readers might have to deal with.
