"While it is geared toward children, it was also helpful for me as an adult as I went through my own stages of grieving when I lost my grandmother. Thank you Emma for your beautiful artwork and a beautiful book."
"VERY gifted little girl. The water colors are amazing creations for a 9 y/o. The activities in the book are excellent ways to help children express the feelings going on inside. It might even be good for parents as well. I wish I had this when my grandmothers passed."
