“Offering a tender view of one girl’s experience, this powerful picture book shows children that they can feel both heartbreak and ongoing love simultaneously. . . . A touching window into a child’s mourning process.” – Kirkus Reviews


Every window at the hospital faces dull, gray buildings—except the one in Grandpa’s room.

  Grandpa can see the ocean every day! When Daria visits, she and Grandpa look out at the beach, hoping they will build sandcastles and fly kites together again.

This touching exploration of a child’s experience of loss offers an unexpected ending, encouraging creativity and self-expression in the midst of grief.

Grandpa’s Window addresses the grieving process, both as a family member approaches the end of life as well as after death. The book includes a note for adults by Dr. Sharie Coombes (, child and family psychotherapist, about how to support children who are grieving the loss of a loved one. A discussion and activity guide for children written by Laura Gehl will be available February 2023 at
