The Invisible String is THE most requested book in our house, and has held this status for quite some time. The book was a lifesaver for our family when my husband was deployed for a year with the Air Force. The description of how people are connected by love over long distances is so well done and understandable that it helped my 3-year-old and 5-year-old know that they were still connected to their dad even though they couldn't see him. It sparked a nightly ritual of "pulling Dad's strings," and we could feel him pulling back. I recommend this book highly for any family that finds themselves separated from each other for any reason, and I think it should be standard issue to the families of any deployed military personnel. You won't regret buying this one -- in fact, you should buy two so you can give one as a gift!

This book is good for small children as well as those up to about 9 or 10. Expresses that distance and even death do not seperate those we love and who love us. Great if you or someone close to you are moving or if a loved one dies to explain how love works at a distance.

As a foster parent, I see many children come and go from my home. They may go back to their family or be adopted by another family. This book is a great way to let them know that they will always be connected to us and anyone that they have met while living with us, as well as the family they lived with before we met them. No matter where the child goes, or where they have come from, they are connected to everyone they have met!! I have sent a copy of this book with the child when they move on from living with us.

Although this book is meant to be read to children, I have given it as a gift to all of my closest friends and family members as a way to say "I'm so gald we're connected!" I also used its basic message to reassure my daughter that even though she was going off to all-day kindergarten, we would still be connected by our invisible strings. This is a very heart-warming story with a bigger message than appears on the surface.

This book was very helpful for my children, ages 4 and 5, after their grandfather unexpectedly passed away in September 2014. They were very close to "Papa" and were sad they would never see him again. I use the "invisible string" to remind them they will always have a connection to him and he to them. They get comfort from this.

This is a wonderful book. It has really helped my kids feel like they are always with the knes they love - regardless of where they are in this world (or beyond). We read it almost nightly and I highly recommend it.

Great for the first day of school for little ones. Its a lovely story that helps children to feel that no matter where they go they are safe and loved. Will definitely read it to my kinders every year.

I bought this book when first diagnosed with Cancer to share with my twin boys (just turned 6). It is a great book to explain that love transcends both distance and time. It's good not only for helping kids deal with death or loss, but also just basic separation while at school or childcare. The boys have randomly asked me if I could feel them tugging the string while I was at work. It makes it easier on all of us for me to go to work, treatments, appointments or even just time away to relax. It will also help them when I'm in the hospital for surgery and they may not be able to visit.

My daughter loves this book. When she goes to her dads house she talks about how her invisible string is pulling and how she is pulling mine. It gave her the words for some hard feelings.
