I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.
The Daffodils Still Grow is written by a woman who lost her mom when she was only 14 years old. She wrote it for girls who lose their mothers at a young age.
I’m 55 years old and both of my parents are living. I can’t imagine losing a parent as a child. It has to be one of the worst things that can happen to a child and, although they have to go through the grief process, resources such as this book should help in some small way. I think knowing that the author went through the same thing would also help because a child would realize that she knows what they’re feeling since she went through it, too.
I definitely recommend The Daffodils Still Grow as a resource for grief-stricken children who have lost a parent.
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!
