This story is like a comfort blanket of love, warmth and reassurance. I bought it for my daughter following the sudden and unexpected death of my husband. My 7 year old was struggling at nighttime when all the distractions of homeschool, play, TV, and music were gone and her little mind was overcome with grief. I read this story to her, and it was as though something clicked inside her. It was the last night she fell asleep crying. I highly recommend it to anyone, not just as an aid in dealing with the loss of loved ones, but a reminder of human connection and compassion in general.
This was a very nice book except that it refers to heaven without the description alerting the buyer to that. Not everyone or every religion believes in heaven, and it would be helpful if the listing were to mention this religious aspect.
The book is really good, it explains that no matter how far away we are from people we love, we are still connected by invisible string made of love. The only issue I had was that it's an American book so it says Mom instead of Mum. But that's not really a big deal. In fact it started a conversation about different languages etc. It's definitely worth purchasing. My daughter is 4 and really enjoyed it and understood it.
This book was recommend to me to read to my daughter after her brother was born sleeping. She was only 3 at the time but very bright and "old for her years". She struggled with the situation as expected and in turn we often found it difficult to explain things to her. This book has been a godsend for us because kids just "get it". She often talks about the invisible strings between her and her brother (and every other family member at that!) It's been fantastic for us and helped with the grieving process. It's beautifully written and is perfect for children who have lost loved ones or who miss their parents whilst at school/work etc
Wonderful story and really has helped my daughter overcome her fear of being alone. She used to hate going to school and me going to work but not anymore! Now she uses her ‘invisible string’ to let me know she misses me and she feels me ‘tug’ back to reassure her that we are still connected. She’s recommended the book to her friends who are also very anxious at school!
This book is just so heartwarming. I read it to my 6 year old a lot. He struggles with separation anxiety and was having a really hard time accepting a family bereavement, I really like the message in this book and really recommend it.
A lovely story with great illustrations. Helped my 4 yr old when he started school (terrible separation anxiety) and also when his father and I separated. He is now 6 and I've had to buy a replacement because we lost the original copy. He still loves the story and ties his invisible string onto me if I go out, and last thing at night.
Definitely loved by my foster child, would totally recommend this one especially when they are first taken into care. This could work well for children with separation anxiety too and for bereaved kids.
