Mom’s Sweater

Mom’s Sweater

by Jayde Perkin

What does it look like to live on, even when Mom is gone? In this grounded, sensitive story, a young girl looks for ways of dealing with the anger, loneliness, and jealousy that death can create. Finding comfort in her mother’s old sweater, she discovers that grief doesn’t necessarily grow smaller over time—but little by little, day by day, we can grow into grief.

With striking, bold illustrations and evocative text, this story will be a gentle companion for young readers who are experiencing loss.
