Grief Resource for Children Coming Soon from Palmetto Publishing

Charleston, SC, May 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- When Jake’s dad passes away, he feels emotions. A lot of emotions. He knows he’s supposed to be sad—and he is—but some things in life are starting to make him smile again.

He starts to wonder… is that okay? Can he be both happy and sad?

In her new nonfiction children’s book Pockets Full of Feelings: A Child’s Grief Journey, certified grief counselor Denise Paul provides children and parents or guardians with the space to talk openly about “big” feelings after the death of someone special. Her book offers insightful tips for managing one’s emotional state and expectations throughout the grief process. 

Written specifically to help children understand that having mixed emotions is not only okay—it’s completely natural—Pockets Full of Feelings serves as a supportive guide for helping children sort through their complex feelings after the loss of a loved one.

Pockets Full of Feelings: A Child’s Grief Journey is available for purchase online at and Barnes and For more information about the author, please visit any of her social media platforms.
