The Heavy Bag

One Girl's Journey Through Grief

By Sarah Surgey

Illustrated by Larisa Ivanković

Enid is a little girl who is grieving for her grandpa. She walks around with different emotions and feelings, whizzing inside of her. Enid is carrying a heavy bag and struggles to let go of the items within her bag because they remind her of grandpa. But, what happens when she opens up to people about how she is feeling and they offer to help carry the weight? Enid will learn that grief remains but takes on many forms, and when you share with others your feelings of grief can feel a little lighter.
