Sarah received a copy of My Yellow Balloon to review in exchange for this post.  All opinions expressed here are honest and her own.

“The balloon man wrapped the string around joey’s wrist and said ‘Here, let me tie you two together’. From that moment on they were never apart. Then in one second everything changed….somehow, some way it slipped off his wrist”.

My Yellow Balloon Is a great book by Tiffany Papageorge that shows how we deal with loss. It could be loss of an object, a person, divorce, and the list goes on.

After Joey loses his balloon he goes through the emotions of anger, confusion, and sadness. One day he sees something bright and yellow in a reflection of the water. He thinks it’s his balloon, but realizes it is the sun. Joey knows he still misses his balloon but says ” Whenever I see the sun, big and bright, I’ll feel you with me. Wherever I am, wherever I go, you are a part of me and I am a part of you. We’re a part of each other forever and ever.”
