When someone you love dies, the grief rock shows up.

Sometimes grief can feel like a heavy weight you are carrying around. It can be difficult to explain how you feel or know how you will cope carrying the grief rock around.

This gentle story explores how grief is filled with all the love we have for someone who was important in our lives.

Perfect to open up the conversation on difficult feelings, the book also includes a short guide for adults with tips on supporting children after a bereavement.

"The Grief Rock is a lovely book that gives a concrete metaphor for grief as a rock that we carry around that can feel heavy or light as we travel our grief road. The end of the book gives a new way to look at grief. As a teacher of young children, I appreciate how this book gives us a way to talk about something that can feel overwhelming and acknowledges that it's ok to feel these big feelings and that it is all tied to love at its core."

"This is probably my favorite book on grief that I have read. I love that it mentions how some people don't know what to say, some people will avoid you, some will try to carry it, how it feels heavy and sometimes you can't eat, etc. It really touches on SO many parts of grief and offers so many talking points."
- NetGalley reviewer, Librarian

"A sweet book that will bring comfort to any family working through the loss of a loved one."
