More Praise for The Invisible String

“This compassionate and heartwarming book relies on simple text and beautiful illustrations to tell the story of a mother who soothes her children by telling them that there’s an invisible string connecting them at all times. . . The Invisible String is an excellent resource for helping children cope with the sadness, separation anxiety and general sense of loss that often occur during the post-divorce bereavement period.”

– PureWOW

“There is something so universal about this concept that will resonate with every reader. Recommended by therapists and parents to help kids cope with loss, it empowers children to do something vital in the face of death: love.”

– American Express Essentials

“Children of all ages (and yes, adults too!) feel a great sense of peace and joy realizing that we are all connected to the ones we love… (pets, friends, grandparents, cousins… especially those that have passed on) through The Invisible String.”

– The National Association of School Psychologists

"The message of The Invisible String resonates with children and adults alike.... The two ends of the treasured Invisible String are families and schools. This String, reinforced on each side, buoys students with love, guidance, direction. But when one end weakens, the entire String falters.... When we need support, reassurance, or simply a kindred spirit, just give the String a tug and someone will tug back. This is powerful, and will keep your child on track through...his or her education journey."

– Carmen Fariña, Chancellor, NYC Department of Education
