Sarah’s Heavy Heart

by Peter Carnavas

New Frontier Publishing. Australian, Picture, Young Reader. Hardback rrp $24.95

Sarah’s heart was hers to carry but it was so large and heavy. She found that all her everyday activities, such as getting on the bus, having a bath, and playing at school were hard because of her heavy heart.

Then one day Sarah sees a boy floating by with a heart that isn’t heavy enough. Could this boy help Sarah with her problem? And could she help him?

Sarah’s Heavy Heart is a beautifully illustrated story that will touch the hearts of many. One which will take away the heaviness for others. A special book about friendship and love.

Carnavas’ Jessica’s Box has been shortlisted for the 2009 Crichton Award for new illustration talent and was a CBCA Notable Book in the Early Childhood section. It was reviewed in The Reading Stack issue 7.
