The Daffodils Still Grow by Sherri Elizabeth Tidwell

This book is a beautiful book with a powerful message just for the child that has lost their mother.  It is a book of encouragement that their feelings of grief are normal.  They can see that others have the same feeling about losing their mother.  It might help them to open up to grief and talk with others about it.  The water color illustrations help set the mood of the book.  It is short and too the point, but has depth and feeling as well.

About the Author

The Daffodils Still Grow was inspired by diary entries of the author/illustrator, Sherri Elizabeth Tidwell, after the death of her mother when she was 14. “My mother committed suicide when I was 14, and after nearly a year of crying and hurting, I was surprised -- almost shocked -- to see the daffodils she planted right before her death still bloom again. It was a big wake-up call to me that, even though she was gone, I could still carry on without her FOR her. Somehow, our loved ones still find a way of communicating with us when we need it the most." Sherri Elizabeth now attends Seton Hill University’s MFA program in Writing Popular Fiction. She has a BA in both communications and studio arts from Austin Peay State University. She hopes that every parent will know how irreplaceable and loved they are to their children and that every child who has lost a parent will know they are not alone. Remember, the daffodils still grow!
