“Ti dono il mio cuore”: the book of the month

Dear friends of fuoritempofuoriluogo,

after a very long and cold January, while I was wandering hypnotized among the books and novels of the “Feltrinelli” of Bari, finally I got it: the book that I had been looking for a long time. When I saw it, I could not resist the temptation to look through its pages and discover the story that now I want to propose you.

Simple in its language but at the same time so full of meaning, it has captured my attention from the first pages, thanks also to the delicate but meaningful images created by the Belgian illustrator Sassafras de Bruyn.

I’m talking about “Ti do il mio cuore” written by Pimm van Hest.

“All you need is here in this little box”. The story, intended for children but also suitable for adults, begins with two key words: box and gift.

The book is about a child, Yuto. One day he meets a wise and old man who gives him a box with a mysterious content whose presence will accompany his personal growth from boy to man.

But what is the content of that object? It is a heart-shaped seed that Yuto will have to take care of and to observe constantly in its growth.

Watching the seed growing with its rhythms leads Yuto to become a conscious and serene man, ready to welcome the beauty of the things and to accept even their losses.

The conclusion brings the reader back to the origins of the story and to the theme of waiting as an essential element in order to understand and accept what is destined to ourselves.

Enjoy this incredible book.
