Overview

When twins Liza and Jeremy are concerned that their mother isn't nearby, she comes to reassure them that they can always feel her love. An invisible string connects people who love each other. Even if Liza were a ballerina in France or if Jeremy were an astronaut out in space, no one is ever alone.

In THE INVISIBLE STRING, inspirational author Patrice Karst shows children that they are always loved, whether their parents are near or far. This lesson is perfectly suited for a variety of situations, including for military families while a parent is serving overseas as well as for coping with loss.

Specifically written to address children's fear of being apart from the ones they love, The Invisible String delivers a particularly compelling message in today's uncertain times that though we may be separated from the ones we care for, whether through anger, or distance or even death, love is the unending connection that binds us all, and, by extension, ultimately binds every person on the planet to everyone else. Parents and children everywhere who are looking for reassurance and reaffirmation of the transcendent power of love, to bind, connect and comfort us through those inevitable times when life challenges us!

Let's tell the whole world that we are ALL connected by Invisible Strings!

Editorial Reviews

PARENTS magazine
A heartwarming story that reassures children that even though they can't always be with a loved one, they're always in each other's hearts.
allParenting.com

A gentle and reassuring story of lifelong connectedness that can be very useful in dealing with the complicated issue of death and separation.

The Styling Librarian
The Invisible String is part of my social skills/feelings book purchases. This is a story about how twins realize there is an invisible string connecting all people who love one another… you can feel it in your heart and always be connected, even from afar. Beautiful. Delicate. Perfect for: dealing with loss, moving, friendship issues, family problems, nighttime fears… Quite the special book.
United Way-Life Lessons for Little Ones
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. The premise of the book is that we are all connected by an invisible string. Even though it is invisible, you can feel it with your heart. Everyone has an invisible string, and it can reach anywhere, even heaven. The book's message is that no one is ever alone, even when their loved one is not physically present.
Military Family.Org
THE INVISIBLE STRING teaches kids how to deal with missing a parent by understanding that they are still connected to their parent via an invisible string. While not geared solely to military families, this touching book can help young children feel connected with deployed parents or other family members that are far away.
Best Reading for Kids
The Invisible String is self-explanatory; it's a must-have for the bookshelves of anyone who enjoys reading a tale with a positive moral and practiced life lesson. The string can be the comfort children need to get over a divorce, a death, a loss of any kind - but it can also be the one thing that makes an adult feel better about the same situations. Instead of feeling disconnected due to travel, heartbreak, or physical loss, people who "feel" their invisible string are likely to experience a better understanding and firmer grasp on their emotions and the situation they're dealing with.

I gave this book 2 years ago to my daughter who had 2 boys under 5 yrs of age - now my other daughter needs it for her 3 yr old, so am sending her one also. The books gives the children comfort and assurance.

This is a fantastic title, recommended and used by Texas Children's Hospital locations in Houston, TX and Katy, TX, to help allieviate separation anxiety when a parent must be separated from the children due to an illness of a sibling, or a temporary separation in the hospital setting. Please consider this title and donate it for the Barnes & Noble Holiday Book Drive for TCH at the Champions Village store!

My daughters loced this book.  Aside from the fact that is just a nice story, it helped them with the idea that they are never really alone - at night, away at school, wherever.  It also, most unexpectedly, helped when their Grandfather died.  They were able to believe that the invisible string really does reach to heaven, and it made it a tiny bit easier for them.  I've given this book as a gift several times, both for birthdays and for sad occasions, and have gotten good feedback from other moms too.
