Product description

Review

A small children's book can't say everything, but it can say something very important. This wonderfully illustrated book does just that. Joanna Rowland gently reminds a hurting child that amid the pain of losing a loved one to death, their love remains alive in memory and relationships, and that love is not diminished even as the child is called to go on living. Many young (and old!) hearts will find real comfort and courage in these pages. --Kelly M. Kapic, author of Embodied Hope: A Theological Meditation on Pain and Suffering

A small children's book can't say everything, but it can say something very important. This wonderfully illustrated book does just that.

Many young (and old!) hearts will find real comfort and courage in these pages. --Sue Atkins, author of Parenting Made Easy: How to Raise Happy Children

Baker's mixed-media collages integrate bits of fabric and softly textured papers, creating a homey atmosphere that dovetails nicely with the girl's homemade box. --Publishers Weekly

Heartfelt and comforting, The Memory Box is beautifully illustrated by Thea Baker and will help adults talk about this very difficult topic with children ages 4 to 8. --Midwest Book Review, The Psychology Shelf
