Zara's Big Messy Goodbye

By Borucki, Rebekah


Grief looks different for everyone, and that's okay.

After seven-year-old Zara experiences a death in her family, she learns that being sad can look different for different people.

With her Mama's help, Zara also learns a way to find comfort when big messy goodbyes feel too big and messy.

Written by mother-of-five and meditation guide Rebekah Borucki, Zara's Big Messy Goodbye teaches children how to recognize and accept their grief while also showing them how to accept the way others grieve.

And though this story deals with the loss of a beloved family member, it is appropriate for teaching children about all kinds of loss, like a broken friendship or a separation caused by moving to a new home or school.

Grief and trauma therapist Gina Moffa, LCSW, will also be your guide.

You'll find a section for parents, teachers, and caregivers at the back of the book, which offers you several exercises to use to work through grief together.
