Where The Heart Is (Satoe Tone)

Hello, friends! Our book today is Where The Heart Is by Satoe Tone, a sweet and tender story of love and devotion.

Two fluffy cats, one white and one black, go for a romantic moonlit stroll one evening. They come upon a pond, where thousands of twinkling lights are dancing across the water, and the black cat promises to catch them for his beloved. He tries to catch them with his paws, a leaf, a line and a net, and while he catches many wonderful things like fish and flying jellyfish and even a massive octopus, he just can’t seem to capture the lights. Disappointed, he apologizes to his love, who simply tells him to look up – the twinkling lights are in the sky. “All for you,” the black cat replies, cuddling with his partner by starlight.

Absolutely adorable. There is a wonderfully romantic tone to the story that will warm the hearts of any adult, yet it maintains an innocence and wonder that keeps it interesting for children. The art is simply magical, using dreamy nighttime colors and a fitting heart motif to draw readers of all ages into the fable. The length is perfect, and JJ and I both loved it. A heartwarming love story, and it’s Baby Bookworm approved!
