The Heart’s Song

Every day, Miss Matilda goes to the neighbourhood park with a suitcase full of tools and all the skills to use them. The children know she can fix anything they bring her, from toys to buckets, clothing to glasses. But she knows how to fix other hurts, too – the hurts that cannot be seen with the eyes or fixed with a tool.
One day, her own heart needs mending. Has she shown the children how to help a person who is hurting on the inside?

The Heart’s Song is a beautifully illustrated story of the power of love, friendship and community to repair damage of all kinds.
