The Daffodils Still Grow is a full-color illustrated book that portrays life after a loved one dies as seen from the observations of a motherless child.
I chose to read and review this book because as a psychology major I was interested in learning more about how children process, deal with, and cope with the loss of a loved one. I found this book to be not just informative, but also touching on an emotional level. I find myself actually having a few tears run down my face as I read about this poor little girl that had lost her mother and could not understand how the world could keep moving. My parents are both still alive, but I believe that even as an adult I would feel much like the little girl did if I were to lose a parent. Losing a love one is always tough no matter how old you are. However I feel like this book provided me with valuable insight into how children cope with the death of a loved one. The art in this book was amazing each picture was unique and each one offered a different message to the reader. I would recommend this book for anyone who is helping a young child deal with the death of a loved one.Below is a brief preview of the book.
