From the Publisher
"Susan Weaver has created the Rainbow Reach Series as a comprehensive tool for children to express thoughts and feelings involving death and loss. From pet loss, to worry, deployment and death, these interactive workbooks create the safe space for expression so needed for our bereaved girls and boys. Parents and professionals will assuredly benefit from using these resources to develop communication and sharing, and normalize a child's grief journey. The Rainbow Reach Series is a valuable tool for young people and adults to use in recognizing the multifaceted aspects of grieving, and for supporting outlooks for recovery and resilience that can be useful throughout a lifetime."
~Linda Goldman, Grief Therapist and Educator
Author of: Life and Loss, Children Also Grieve, and Raising Our Children to Be Resilient
"The Rainbow Reach Series is wonderful! I love the way that a child's creativity is utilized in indentifying emotions and focusing on blessings. The books offer excellent yet simple text and drive the lessons of optimism, acceptance of feelings and resilience home in truly age-appropriate ways. Bravo!"
~Fran Zamore, MSW, ACSW
Author of: GriefWork - Healing from Loss and The GriefWork Companion - Activities for Healing
"The key to recovery from significant emotional loss is to express feelings in the moment you have them. Children are naturally superb at communicating what they feel when they feel it. The Rainbow Reach Series of books presents perfect guidelines for children to help them discover what they need and want to communicate about life-affecting events, in pictures and words. We heartily endorse these books - and heart is the most important element."
~Russell Friedman & John W. James
Co-authors of: The Grief Recovery Handbook and When Children Grieve
"As a licensed clinical psychologist, with several years of experience helping children with the issues contained in the Rainbow Reach Series, I would utilize this book in a child's therapy to help them learn how to express difficult thoughts and feelings. The book is colorful, engaging, and easy to use, and the activities will help children address the impact of life events in healthy ways."
~Lynn J. Piper, Ph.D., LCP
"In an age of communication by social media networks, Twitter, Facebook, and other non-physically connected devices, it is refreshing to find a means to help children deal with the pain of loss, parental deployment, worry and anxiety that is non-electronic and allows for multimedia expression of feelings in an interactive format. The use of drawings and activities illustrate more complex concepts such as projection, desensitization, grief, mourning, and guilt. The Love & Memories activity book is an excellent tool to help children work through the stages of loss including remembering, ritual, and moving on."
~Mary Beth Williams, Ph.D., LCSW
"Children heal best when they are engaged in activities that help them express and resolve difficult feelings. The Rainbow Reach Series provides such activities in a creative, interesting workbook format that will help children move beyond grief and anxiety."
~Mary W. Lindahl, Ph.D., LCP
Professor of Psychology, Marymount University
