Farewell Books

Are you struggling with expressing how you feel?

Want to show you care, without being too sentimental?

Or are you looking for something different, something small, to give as a going away gift?

Then consider giving an illustrated farewell story.

There are blank pages at the end and white space inside the covers to add your own message, or other people's signatures, if you wish.

The style of the farewell poems are cartoon illustrations, which are ideal for a child/teen, an adult close to you, or to add a light-hearted touch to the farewell occasion.

Remember, it's not how much you give, it's how you make them feel.
They'll love their farewell gift - and you'll look so thoughtful.

I thought they were darling...My plan was to tuck these books into another gift that I am giving someone (an adult Administrator) who is leaving. She was once an elementary teacher, her first love, and children's books are very important to her.

I bought "The Farewell" story as a resource to support the transition of a child, in my Nurture Group, who is moving on to a new school. We will be using the story as a starter to creating our own stories for the child as a gift to take with him.
I love the pictures and want the children to really look at the impact different compositional aspects have on the reader/audience.
Truly lovely story. Thank you.
