A warm story by a hard-working heart mom!

What a great lesson to teach all children that we should accept each others differences and not be afraid to embrace our own differences.

My three children and I love Riley's Heart Machine and the special message it conveys. We're eager to attend a book signing so we can have our copies autographed. We plan to donate copies to the school and share this wonderful story with our friends and family. Thank you, Ms. Jones, for creating awareness in such a unique and creative way and for helping the Children's Heart Foundation at the same time!

Wonderful book to teach children about other kids with heart defects and pacemakers. It is fun to read and the drawings are very cute. I have a pacemaker and got the book for my 3-year old nephew because I'm starting to teach him that I have a heart machine. I have read it to him a bunch of times already and he doesn't get tired of it. Every time I turn a page, he looks at the pictures and tells me what's going to happen next. It's been a great aid for me to teach him about my heart machine. I'm so happy to have found this book!

I love how this book is written by a mom about her daughter. My daughter has a heart machine as well and I am glad she has a book that she can relate directly to.

My daughter has Tetralogy of Fallot, a congenital heart defect. Given that her condition is rather rare, it is difficult to find literature appropriate for her age level. When we got this book, I read it to my daughter, who is ten years old. She really enjoyed it, even though the main character had a different condition, my girl felt that she could relate to her. The pictures were really nice and the storyline was simple and understandable for even the youngest of listeners.

When I told my daughter about Riley's Heart Machine, she wanted to read it immediately, because she was unaware of a heart pacemaker and had many questions. She is ten, and at an age when she is curious about her own body and image as well as those of her friends. She felt sad for the girl who is the central character, but felt good about her being able to discuss her secret with her friends. I highly recommend this book for kids who have anxieties about discussing illnesses or differences with their peers. The book will help others to learn that even though someone may have differences, they are able to live a normal life and be accepted.

This charming picture book is about a girl who has always kept her difference a secret from her friends, but she finally dares to share about her pacemaker at a show and tell time in her class. To her surprise the other kids find the "heart machine" and the story of how she got it fascinating.The book is encouraging to all kids who feel different.

Riley's Heart Machine should be a must-have for any child dealing with a pacemaker. All children will be able to relate to Riley's anxiety about revealing her "secret", and will be able to relate to her story. I also love that proceeds from the book will benefit the Children's Heart Foundation. Highly recommend this!
