An imaginative and heartfelt book that reminds us that there is no loss without love.


When Grief first arrives, it is like an elephant-so big that there is hardly room for anything else. But over time, Grief can become smaller and smaller-first a deer, then a fox, a mouse, and finally a flickering firefly in the darkness leading us down a path of loving remembrance.


This lyrical work is an empathetic and comforting balm for anyone who is experiencing grief, be it grieving the loss of a loved one or losses in the world around us.

Grief is an Elephant by Tamara Ellis Smith & Nancy Whitesides
