5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Anne on April 22 2004
Format: Hardcover
Written in a children's book format - with simply worded concepts, wonderfully colored pictures, and a creative idea - this is one of those great books that actually feels written for adults as much as for school-age children.
I've used lots of books on grief in 30 years of practicing psychotherapy. And this is the best! It's written in a way that gives the grieving mind and exhausted spirit a quick, hands-on idea of what's happening, and it gives fabulous permission to every reader to absolutely do your grief "your way."
I've given out perhaps 25 copies. Some come back. Others set out on a journey of their own. And I love that they do. I feel like "the Lupine Lady" (reference to another children's book.)
I'd like to thank the authors, if they ever read their reviewers, for a heart-felt gift to us.

Format: Hardcover
My counselor recommended this book to me after the loss of my son. As I cried my way through the book, I found validation for my feelings and thoughts. It was very helpful to me and it is also a good source for friends who want to know how to help people dealing with similar losses. I am buying a copy to donate to my local library.

Format: Hardcover
I am a Marriage and Family Therapist who recently lost my beloved Mother. Her death was sudden and unexpected. I received this book as a gift to help me through my first birthday without my Mother. This book is absolutely tremendous in it's ability to address the truth of grief. This is a must have for both the bereaved and any professional who works with clients both young and old. I particularly enjoyed the way the book addressed the responses of the people around the bereaved--it was very healing and I will be purchasing several copies to give to people who have suffered a great loss.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By helping hand on April 2 2011
Format: Hardcover
In the last three years I have bought 5 copies of this book, 4 of them to give to people who I wanted to help with the heavy hearted task of grieving the lost of a loved one and one copy that gave me sage advise and strength on how to be a supportive friend. I was so touched by Grandy' simple story and how she and her husband dealt with their grief, each in their own unique way ,and what help and support she needed to carrier them through the stages of grief.It shows that each of us will encounter grief(not just death) in our lives and it will be different and impact each of us in our own way. How we "make our Soup" and what ingredients we use are as personal as our feelings and memories.
I referred this book to another friend who was helping a co-worker through a tragedy and she emailed me and gave me a big "thank you". Any great Loss is emotionally intricate and this book does a fantastic job of easing the fear of not only the people who have endured that loss but those who continue to stand by their side and help see them though.

Format: Hardcover
... This book is wise and insightful, both for a grieving person as well as someone who loves a grieving person. Any type of loss is addressed in this book. The book is perfect for children as the illustrations are stunning and it is written simply, but adults will experience it more deeply as they will see it's wisdom and understand it's nuances. This is an excellent choice.

Format: Hardcover
My dad died suddenly in June, 2002; my mom died, after living with cancer,in January 2003. Someone sent me this book and it was the best piece I have read on grief. I am ordering multiple copies in memory of my parents. I will distribute them to elementary and secondary schools, hospice facilities and chaplains. Anyone who works with grieving people will want this book!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The understanding and expression of Grief is explored in depth. Artistic illustrations are superb. One can relate to the many causes of grief; the lesson learned is that grief is an individual expression. Pages at the end of the story are full of very useful information for all of those caught up in the grieving process. For both children and adults.
