Book Review - "Wishes for One More Day"
“Wishes for One More Day” written by Melanie Joy Pastor and published by Flashlight Press is a valuable addition to any counseling library and even recommended for one’s personal collection as well. Anna and Joey awake to the news that their beloved Poppy has passed away in the night. Both children are not given the opportunity to tell their Poppy good-bye. A list is created of things they wish they could do one more time with their Poppy and this list is created into a memory book highlighting the times they had spent with their Poppy. A wonderful story that celebrates the life of a loved grandparent and helping children to work through their grief by focusing on the happy memories that they can cherish for years to come. This book is highly recommended and an excellent resource to use with children who have recently lost a loved one.
