What happens when a small paper heart takes one large journey? It discovers more than just a city - it discovers itself. Separated from its companion Rosalina, the heart must explore the streets of Paris by itself. This adventure helps the heart understand the true meaning of love and the importance of traveling the world with others. Highlighting some of the most beautiful and endearing locations in France, this story encourages exploration of cities around the globe, while also sharing the significance of sharing those moments with loved ones.
The children’s book “The Journey of The Paper Heart” tells the captivating story of a young girl, a paper heart, an enchanting city, and its rich history and traditions. Through Rosalina and her paper heart, the message is revealed that only when we share the best moments with others are we able to fully enjoy them. Rosalina’s paper heart is a gift to her, and in turn, it brings her comfort. Love is a continuous gift. Once given, it has no boundaries but expands and fills the empty spaces. As the paper heart travels through the glorious city of Paris, it becomes evident that without sharing the most beautiful moments of our lives with others, they will only be grey at best. Much like the stunning landmarks and legends of Paris that appear without color for the paper heart, our lives are dull without the company of others. The paper heart realizes that companionship yields the greatest benefits: guidance when facing new situations, appreciation for beauty when looking at the world, wonder at the grandeur of the most treasured moments, and acceptance of all that makes us artfully imperfect and unique.
