Book Cover of What is Given From the Heart by Pat McKissack

This heartwarming read reveals a beautiful truth that it’s not what you give but how you give it.

This adorable picture book is about a young boy named James Otis and his search for a gift for a little girl in his church who is currently in need. At first, James is reluctant to give because he feels that he barely has anything for himself. However, James is reminded that “…What is given from the heart reaches the heart.” This story teaches that a gift doesn’t need to be expensive or fancy but given in love to honor and value the person receiving the gift. This book is about the power of kindness and the joy of giving.
