"That's impossible," said twins Jeremy & Liza after their Mum told them they're all connected by this thing called an Invisible String. "What kind of string?" They asked with a puzzled look to which Mum replied, "An Invisible String made of love." That's where the story begins. A story that teaches of the tie that really binds. Mums (and Dads) feel the tug whenever kids give it; and kids feel the tug that comes right back: the Invisible String reaches from heart to heart. Does everybody have an Invisible String? How far does it reach, anyway? Read all about it! Whether it's a loved one far away, or a parent in the next room, this delightful book illustrates a new way to cope with something all children and parents confront sooner or later; a child's fear of loneliness and separation. Here is a warm and delightful lesson teaching young and old that we aren't ever really alone.

Industry Reviews

"A heartwarming story that reassures children that even though they can't always be with a loved one, they're always in each other's hearts. Whenever a child thinks about a family member, THE INVISIBLE STRING gives a tug. The gentle story illustrates that we are still connected by love even after someone passes. -- --Parents Magazine "Parents Magazine" "THE INVISIBLE STRING teaches kids how to deal with missing a parent by understanding that they are still connected to their parent via an invisible string. While not geared solely to military families, this touching book can help young children feel connected with deployed parents or other family members that are far away." -- --MilitaryFamily.org "MilitaryFamily.org" "If I could only have one book to use for counseling purposes, this would be it. This book is extremely versatile. It can be used for any type of separation, loss." -- --The United Way (Life Lessons for Little Ones) "The United Way (Life Lessons for Little Ones)" "A wonderful storybook for children experiencing separation anxiety." -- --Today's Parent "Today's Parent" "Children of all ages (and yes, adults too!) feel a great sense of peace and joy realizing that we are all connected to the ones we love through The Invisible String." -- --The National Association of School Psychologists "The National Association of School Psychologists"

One of my favourite children's books of all time

This book has been so important to my children's lives, and in my work. I've used it in the context of school chaplaincy, kids church, adult sermons, and in helping my own children through times of grief and loss. The story is beautifully told, the illustrations are engaging and it talks through important issues without being heavy handed. I would recommend it to any family, regardless of faith or circumstance as it talks about love and connection in general terms that children can easily process, and has helped me process my emotions and grief as well.

My children are victims of the family law court. They were separated from their protective family to live with their abuser. This book is fantastic for all protective family to write messages of love inside to remind children they are loved by many and thought of daily by many. Helped my children to keep moving forward knowing many family and friends are connected to them.
