A Wrinkled Heart

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


A Wrinkled Heart is a touching and delightful interactive ebook about learning to be kind to others. Children will be engaged by the read-along narration, fun sound effects, and cheerful background music! 

This moving story is based on a folktale long used by teachers around the world. One beautiful morning, Elliott, a young bunny, joyfully gets up and ready for his school day. At breakfast, he is scolded for spilling some milk, and his heart wrinkles a little bit. At school, Elliott encounters some friends who hurt his feelings and his heart wrinkles even more… until it's all wrinkled up! Later, his friends and family apologize for their hurtful words and try to take the wrinkles out. Elliott feels better, but some wrinkles get left behind. He decides to always be careful with his words so he doesn't wrinkle anyone's heart. Readers learn the importance of kindness, friendship and the Golden Rule.

A Wrinkled Heart is the perfect tool for teachers, school counselors and parents to help develop empathy in preschoolers and elementary children, and can be used as part of a lesson plan on character and social development. The charming, yet sophisticated illustrations by Lindy Burnett, draw you right into the woodland life of little Elliott, his family, and forest friends. 

There is a page with "Simple Ways to be Kind to Others" and an activity for cutting out a paper heart to wrinkle as the story is told…. a perfect visual aid!
