Recently, one of my daughter’s classmates lost his father to cancer. At 6, it was very hard for the child to comprehend such a great loss.
I recalled how the #squirky adventure series incorporated topics such as adoption, loss of kin and sadness. Squirky has handled these issues with kindness and courage. I purchased the 4 books and asked if the author Melanie Lee could pen a personal message to the affected child. She readily agreed and wrote a message in every one of the 4 copies. Such a kind person.
I will pass these books to the child and hope they will help him to grapple with his grief.
