Guest Blogger, Randi Pearlman Wolfson, Author of Eddie’s Brave Journey
If you could see the heart of a grieving child, it might look larger than expected. That’s because it grows in size to encompass confusion, fear, sadness, loneliness, and love.
If you could place a stethoscope on the heart of a grieving child, this is what you might hear: “Why me?” “I’m scared.” “Who will take care of me?” “I’m confused.” “It was my fault.”
Setting out on a courageous journey after his Grandpa Joe has died, Eddie Elephant learns from other animals about the feelings of grief and how to help his heart begin healing. A sweet little squirrel named Solly accompanies Eddie on his journey, asking just the right questions of the reader to help address his/her own grief.
Parents and caregivers can rest assured that the heartwarming words on each page are based on well-respected and documented grief theory. This is the perfect grief resource for children ages 2-10 years old.
