A Heartwarming Story for Kids About Self-Love
The award-winning book, The Girl and the Lock on Her Heart, is a story for both adults and children: a story that ignites the child's inner love, a story that heals the parent's inner child, and a story that sparks heartfelt conversations.
A journey to love: friendship, romantic, and material love. But the most important of all... self-love
There is a girl born with a lock on her heart, orphaned, and never learned of love. She is told that finding a key could unlock her heart and bring her love. So, she sets out on a journey to find it. But the journey is not easy, as she later learns that she needs to first find love before finding the key. Why is love the answer to finding her key? What kind of love does she need to find? Will the girl who never learned of love find love and her key?
A self-love story being told with whimsical illustrations, limitless imaginations, and powerful self-affirmation. This story is a reminder to all readers that we all have love within us and that love for ourselves is more important than the love we found in our external environments.
