Publishers Description 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.

It Tells It All! May 30, 2008
After the death of my beloved husband, I read a number of books on the topic of grief. This book was the best. It tells the reader in a succinct manner the healthy way to go through the grieving process. The book is good for all ages (including children). I have bought a number of copies and now give it to any close family member of friend who goes through a major loss in his/her life.
Tear Soup is beautiful May 18, 2008
This is a wonderful light-hearted book for anyone going through or one who knows someone going through the grieving process and doesn't quite know what to say to others who try to help. Utilizes a clever metaphor of soup preparation. Makes a great gift.
Touches your heart May 15, 2008
I first found out about this book at a SIDS Parents support group I attend. I fell in love with it. No matter how old you are, or what your loss is, this book clarifies that ALL people grieve differently. Even if you haven't experienced a loss but know someone who has and you don't know what to do to help them... this book is the answer. I buy this book for all new SIDS Parents that I meet. It's great for the parent(s), the sibling(s) and any other family member of friend that is hurting.
Tear Soup a great read for all ages! May 5, 2008
Tear Soup is a well written book on the issue of grief and loss. Whether a child or an adult, a recent loss or from long ago, the book speaks to and validates those painful experiences. The author shares a variety of ways that individuals respond to grief both personally and when others have experienced loss. It offers readers the freedom to experience and express grief in the many ways one might on any given day or moment. I keep an inventory of this book and share in place of a sympathy card.

I would highly recommend this book to everyone. We all have changes in our life and this can help with all changes not just death.
