Publisher Comments:

The award-winning, bestselling children's book is now available as a video, narrated by the nationally-known Mary McDonald-Lewis. In this modern-day fable, a woman who has suffered a terrible loss cooks up a special batch of "tear soup, " blending the unique ingredients of her life into the grief process. Along the way she dispenses a recipe of sound advice for people who are in mourning or know someone who has suffered a loss. The video was created by filming the richly-illustrated pages from the book and adding narration and an original score. Together these two resources present a profound message in a sublime way for children, as well as people of all ages. The video provides a new way to offer the helpful messages of "Tear Soup to those who have suffered a loss. An appendix in the book contains a helpful listing of grief support groups for a variety of situations. Grief counselors and ministers of many denominations have found "Tear Soup a helpful book for those in the first stages of mourning.

This is my favorite book about grief. I have purchased at least 5 copies as gifts and I have one at home. It is written very simply and is very nicely illustrated, so it makes a wonderful book to share with children dealing with loss. It also provides many good tools and some great advice for adults that are grieving. It does a fabulous job of reminding us that we are never alone in our struggles, and that taking care of and being kind to ourselves is the first step in dealing with any difficulty in life, including loss.

We found this book when our granddaughter died. It helped us a lot. We liked it because the ideas were simply presented. It's a "How to Grieve" book, but you aren't bogged down by a lot of text. Another advantage is that it appeals to all ages. I can't count the number of copies our family has bought since to give to others who are grieving. It's a great recipe for helping you deal with your grief.
