The Key to My Heart

Nira Harel
AGE: 3-6

Why do we have keys? Keys open doors - to our homes, our cars, our offices, and so on. But is there such a thing as a key to one's heart? This heartwarming story is about a lost key chain, but it is also about father-son relationships. Jonathan`s dad loses his key chain. He and Jonathan decide to search together in all the places he went that day, but the key chain is nowhere to be found. They decide to go home and, to their surprise, Mom has the lost key chain! Perhaps losing it wasn`t such a bad thing after all: Jonathan spent a wonderful afternoon with his dad and, more important, he learned that he means more to his father than anything else.
