Grief Doodling by Harriet Hodgson'


Grief Doodling is a different approach to coping with loss. It gets tweens and teens to participate, think, set goals, and start walking a healing path.

From the very first page, Grief Doodling invites action. Topics range from the benefits of doodling, to why doodling is fun, to doodling tips, and responding to doodling prompts. The prompts, based on grief research, promote self-worth and healing.

This is a hopeful book—something all grieving kids need.


Harriet is our “SPOTLIGHT” Author for the entire month of May.

  2. Congratulations Shirley! Rooting for you this month and looking forward to your special events this month. Enjoy! BTW We never made it to the train station on Devils night and are surprised that the news did not report on the event at all.


    1. Yeah John, I was wondering about it. I didn’t keep up with it like I should have that’s why I was hoping you could find out. Did you see the lights? I live in Oak Park where they do 4th of July fireworks and its never reported. So Detroit has to have a better press corp to handle the news that comes out of the city. Oak Park does too.

      Hope to see you on Saturday for RNH and I really appreciate how supportive you have been with all the zoom meetings. Thank you very much.


    1. Bette, talk about shining. I’m all over facebook with my new haircut and its the talk of the town. So people keep me shining and I’m so grateful.

      Thank you so much.


    2. Congratulations, Lisa, on being the Spotlight author! Your background is so fascinating – I have two of your books in my “lineup” and am so looking forward to reading them. Enjoy the spotlight – richly deserved!!
