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
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
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.

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.

I recently lost my fiance, i read this book several months later and found it to be a tremendous help in moving forward with my grief and my life. i purchased it for several other people dealing with loss since then and all have found it a great help. This book is ideal for anyone dealing with any type of loss as well as people supporting someone thru loss. If there were to be any tool that everyone should have for dealing with grief, this book would be it.

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.

When my dad passed away I had stumbled upon this book. While reading the book I cried and cried. It was so what I needed to hear at that time. I ran right out and bought a copy for my mom. Great book and I highly recommend it.
