The Invisible Stringby Patrice Karst, Geoff Stevenson (Illustrator)
In THE INVISIBLE STRING, inspirational author Patrice Karst shows
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!
A gentle and reassuring story of lifelong connectedness that can be very useful in dealing with the complicated issue of death and separation.

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.
