5-Star Review from Readers’ Favorite
You don’t have to see them to feel them with you. They’re happy you are finding ways to remember them.” A poignant thought. The language is simple so young readers can follow along and the illustrations are subtle and sweet in their representation of the ideas shared in the text. At the end of the book is an interactive exercise where the young reader can share what they learned in the story and perhaps even share some of their own sad stories about the loss of a loved one. The story is beautifully presented with care and attention to detail. – Emily-Jane Hills Orford, Reviewer from Readers’ Favorite

“Always in your Heart” is a special, comforting book that offers coping strategies for young children who experience the loss of a relative or friend. The open-ended flow of the story makes the book universally applicable to children. The author offers effective strategies for parents, teachers, and librarians by acknowledging children’s grief and sparking memories to help them cope. Helpful questions at the end of the book support dialogue after reading and extend the story to children’s own experiences. “Always in your Heart” will serve as a nice addition to family, school, and community libraries. It’s a must-have book for the bibliotherapy toolbox.
Awe, so glad you found it valuable Susan! Yes – great resource for family, schools, and libraries alike. 🙂

“Always in Your Heart” helps children to understand losing someone they love, but also gives excellent coping ideas. It reassures readers that it is okay to miss someone and that there is way to keep them close by in thought and actions. I especially like the questions to help start a difficult discussion with a little one. I love the colorful illustrations and inclusivity. This book will help to comfort many.
We’re so glad you think so, too, Kathy! Really love this book. 💕
