A beautifully illustrated, poignant story about finding a way forward through loss. This book is a brilliant conversation starter. Though it is meaningful for everyone, Merin and Her Very Bright Star is indispensable for children who have experienced the loss of a loved one at a young age; A gift for families experiencing loss.
Merin and Her Very Bright Star should be in every school and on every therapist’s bookshelf. This is not something I say lightly. Having worked with young children for decades, I have found few books that are really helpful during these difficult times. To have a book that aids discussion and has illustrations that will captivate and bring comfort to a child, is a rarity.
I’ll leave you with a quote from the story…
“The star taught her that she could turn something lost into something found, and if everyone did this, the world would be brighter.”
