Changing the Conversation on Grief
“Grief Waves” is a therapist-approved book in verse designed to help kids notice grief with the support of a trusted adult, and to notice how grief is a sort of messenger - bringing all sorts of information. Typically we speak of grief when we speak of death, but the goal of “Grief Waves” is to help kids (and adults) see grief as a feeling we get when we lose anything that was meaningful to us.Check out a few previews of the story.
Multiple books covering multiple topics
We have several other books already in the editing phase that we hope to release soon, but we need your help! We successfully crowdfunded our first book "Shame Mud" on kickstarter and are super grateful to all those who supported us! In future releases, we plan to address other topics like labels, expectations, and physical health. We hope that the success of our first book helps us to release many more books that empower kids to understand and know their true worth!

"Grief work is life work! Grief Waves is a thoughtful reflection of that process. As the story unfolds it gives permission for a range of emotions felt. Grief Waves offers an invitation for conversation in ways that honor loss while holding space for the process of grief work." Erin Shepard LCSW Mental Health Therapist.
In "Grief Waves" Jamie Jensen splendidly addresses the complicated manifestations of grief and loss by offering children a concrete metaphor they can understand.
