Product description

Review

"If I could only have one book to use for counseling purposes, this would be it. This book is extremely versatile. It can be used for any type of separation, loss."―United Way (Life Lessons for Little Ones)

"Delivers a particularly compelling message in today's uncertain times that though we may be separated from the ones we care for, love is the unending connection that binds us all."―
The American Academy of Pediatrics

"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 through The Invisible String."―
The National Association of School Psychologists

"A wonderful storybook for children experiencing separation anxiety."―
Today's Parent

"
The Invisible String is part of my social skills/feelings book purchases.... Beautiful. Delicate. Perfect for: dealing with loss, moving, friendship issues, family problems, nighttime fears.... Quite the special book."―The Styling Librarian

"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

"[Promotes] a vision of global unity and empathy...effective."
Kirkus

"Whether kids are having separation anxiety or dealing with divorce or even death, this sweet story is very reassuring."
Motherly

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful: paperback pictures are better
Reviewed in Canada on April 18, 2022
Beautiful imagery in the paperback (different illustrator to hardcopy version). Lovely story in each, but having both (1 recieved as gift), I adore the paperback specifically. With concept of being joined forever by love, through time and space.
I bought book to help toddler begin to learn idea of love connecting us all, in preparation of a pending death of a family member. Ended up bringing the paperback version to the Celebration of Life for our departed family member, which brought smiles to attendees.
Book would be helpful for any separation anxiety or distances. Like help for returning to work/daycare, or caregiver absence while travelling without family, or a dear friend moving away, etc. Maintains concept we are all connected by love, regardless of circumstance. A nice re-enforcement that the child is never truly alone. <3 None of us are ever truly alone so long as we feel love and loved <3
