Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
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.
