Letters To The Stars – Mireia Gombau
If you are supporting a child with grief you may like to read my blog post on How to Talk to Children about Death. A book that has been very much treasured since my nan passed is Letters To The Stars. Thank you to the author Mireia Gombau who kindly sent us a copy. It was such a timely book for us as a family.
Letters To The Stars Synopsis
It’s a heart warming little story about Noa whose Nana has passed away.
Noa is upset that she can’t share the news of things happening in her life with Nana. She misses the things they used to do together.
Then Noa’s mother shares a secret with Noa that she could still speak to her Nana through a letter. Noa scribes her letter and sends it off to find her Nana in the stars.
This book is so comforting and feels like it’s wrapping you in a huge hug. Floss and I have really enjoyed sharing it together. I love how the text is written in a simple, light way giving space for thoughts of your own. There are many opportunities throughout the book to pause and consider the similarities and differences in your own circumstances and that of Noa’s.
