Stephanie and I just had a chance to read your wonderful book.
It is just precious! So well written (from the heart) and we loved the illustrations.

Thank you Tom for sending me "Molly's Pollywogs" to use in my work with grieving children. It is a beautiful book and very sweet and gentle. I think children will relate to the story of the pollywogs and then be able to bring the analogy used in the book to their real lives. It is short, direct and gentle. Very nicely done. I am sure you will reach many grieving children on their journey to heal. I have the book in my office in a basket of children's books and will use it as well.

Thank you again. It takes time to get the word out there and looks like you are doing it!

Take good care,

Fondly,

Patricia Zielinski
