A story for children about loss, greif and hope.

When Maya learns that her mother has died, all the color in her world changes to a dreary gray. she feels guilty, angry, sad and lost (sometimes all at once!), and she doesn't know what to do to feel better. Little by little, with the help of her dad, Mia learns how to cope with her difficult feelings. together, they remember her mother by creating memory boxes, and they even get rid of anger by crazily sloshing paints and punching holes in newspapers! in the end, Mia finds her own, very special way of coping. when she feels sad or lonely she looks up to the stars.

Full of practical strategies, this story book for children aged 5-9 addresses loss, grief and hope. it covers the different stages of grief, from initial disbelief, anger and sadness to resolution and hope, and highlights the importance of giving children the time and space to work through their feelings.
