The Daffodils Still Grow: A Book for Grieving Daughters by Sherri Elizabeth Tidwell is a fantastic grief resource for children who have lost a mother. The book is written from the first person viewpoint of a young girl, and she expresses all the ways she notices her mom is gone: No one to braid her hair like the other little girls, a room full of everything mom owned, and peering behind her for a double-take on a stranger that resembled mom.

As we know, grief is complicated, even in children. When a parent dies, children (depending on age) don’t often know how to express the complex emotions and thoughts within them. In fact, they may act out behaviorally as a sign that they are hurting from the loss and simply do not know how to talk about it. The Daffodils Still Grow is an excellent resource for families who don’t know how to start a conversation about life, death and eternity. Children may ask questions as the adult reads the tale, which breaks the discomfort in talking about such a difficult topic.

I read the book to my oldest daughter, Felicity, who is nearing five years old. Though she hasn’t lost a parent yet (or any significant person in her life for that matter), she was curious about life and death. She asked me, “Mommy, what happens when people die?” And I responded, “Their heart stops beating, and they stop breathing. It looks like they are asleep, but they never wake up.”

In turn, Felicity began asking about eternity, which I never suspected might come next. As I write this, it’s clear that this is a natural transition from death to “What’s next?” She was open-minded and gained a significant dose of spiritual insight as she continued, “Do we go to Heaven when we die, Mommy? Does God live in Heaven?

At the age of fourteen, author Sherri Tidwell was left motherless. As an adult looking back on her diary entries, she decided her feelings could be helpful to others in the form of a children's book. After that first year of her mom being gone, she remembered the surprise she felt when the daffodils her mom had planted still bloomed. It was a reminder that Tidwell could carry on, just as the daffodils did.

In this full-color, beautifully illustrated book, Tidwell takes the reader through all the emotions a young girl might face after the death of a mother. She expresses pain at a quiet house, seeing her friends with their moms, and not wanting to get rid of her mom's possessions. The illustrations offer just as much emotion as the words on the page. This isn't an easy topic and certainly not a book you would give to just anyone. But, for girls who are suffering without a mom, the words offer a hug, an understanding, and hope to a grieving child.

As a hospice social worker, I had a difficult time recommending books for young children dealing with grief because, at the time, there just weren't very many out there. It is a hard topic to handle in books and these type of books aren't going to be sitting on the shelves right when you walk in the door of your favorite bookstore. This book handles all those delicate feelings young girls and even teenagers are facing as they try to move through life without a mom.

This book offers a heartfelt story for young daughters mourning the loss of their mother. The book addresses the important emotional issues such as: Why did my mother die? How do I live with this feeling of loss? Who can understand what I 'm feeling? My mother died when she was in her forties, and even though I was barely in my twenties, the loss was deep and difficult. I strongly recommend this book for parents, teachers and other community leaders.

This book is a wonderful gift to children of any age who have lost a mother. Losing a mother at any time in your life can be devastating,but at a early age, it can be life changing. The author, Ms. Tidwell has written about losing her mother at the age of 14. She views all of the things she remembers about her mother now that she is gone. Her mother is everywhere. In her daily activities, the thing of her mother's that are around the house, she's everywhere. Grief is not an easy thing for anyone. It's hard for an adult to go through the grieving process, let alone a child who doesn't know how to process all the things they are feeling and thinking. Some children don't know any way to express themselves except anger. Life and death are hard subjects to talk about, especially to a child. I feel this book would be good to start a very young child out with so if something does happen, they are a little prepared. It might ease the child's mind of some of the "scary" feelings they have. The book is written in a way that is easy to understand with some very nice illustrations to go along with it. It helps the child to relate to something that is still there and will be. And so "The Daffodils Still Grow". A wonderful addition to your child's reading shelf. We need more books that help children through life processes. To make life not so "scary". A lovely and heart warming book.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author, Sherri Elizabeth Tidwell, for my unbiased review. No other compensation took place.
