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!

Riley's Heart Machine is a great book for heart children. Children with heart defects will love reading about Riley sharing her news with her friends. We are grateful that Lori Jones is going to donate some of the proceeds to the Children's Heart Foundation. The Children's Heart Foundation funds research of congenital heart defects, which are the most common birth defect. There are just four full-time, paid employees in the country. All the rest of the support comes from voluteers like Lori, who is on the board of the Pennsylvania Chapter. A warm story by a hard-working heart mom! - Patty Cheshire, President of the Children's Heart Foundation- Pennsylvania Chapter

Format: Paperback
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.

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!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My boys and I LOVED this book! It is a sweet story with a powerful message for all children. Riley faced her biggest fear of telling her friends about her secret with such courage. The takeaway lesson for my boys was that often times when you face your fears in life (especially when you might be different from your friends)that you will be stronger than you were before. Thanks for writing such a sweet and lovely book.

This is an incredibility sweet story about a little girl with a secret.
It's a fantastic way for kids to learn that having a secret that makes them different can also make them special. Riley's friends were bubbling over with questions when she told them about her heart and Riley was happy to answer them all.
You can feel her triumph.
A feel good book for the family to sit down and read together.

Whether your child has a heart defect or not, this heart warming story reflects the courage and strength of living with a pacemaker while enlightening all readers to understand the unique and special lives of those who live with this amazing secret. Everyone should read this wonderful story and be open like children to other peoples special and unique lives. A story for all ages!
