Absolutely Amazing

Our adopted daughter is having a hard time with separation from me, and just today she explained to someone about how her invisible string works.

Wonderful book!

I heard this book read at a grief workshop. This book is a wonderful book for families!

beautifully written

A great book with heaps of emotions. A special one to keep.

An excellent book to ease separation and explain love!

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!

Not just a children's picture book!

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.

Great story about love

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 the world slowly begins to open back up and we welcome our students back into our schools, I am thinking about how best to support our children through this transition. The following six children’s books are conversation starters for families to reflect on this past year, to talk through how their children might play a role in identifying and regulating their emotions, and how to shake off the dust of worry and anxiety from this year.
