|A wonderful story about the invisible string that connects loved ones. Whenever one thinks about another member of the family, the string gives a tug and you feel it.|
At the meeting, we had a large room that we divided in half (half for adults, half for kids). All the kids were together in one corner of the room with volunteers there to help. One of these (fabulous!) volunteers read this book aloud to them to start the activities.
It's a sweet story; from the Amazon.com description: Specifically written to address children's fear of being apart from the ones they love, The Invisible String delivers a particularly compelling message in today's uncertain times that though we may be separated from the ones we care for, whether through anger, or distance or even death, love is the unending connection that binds us all, and, by extension, ultimately binds every person on the planet to everyone else. Parents and children everywhere who are looking for reassurance and reaffirmation of the transcendent power of love, to bind, connect and comfort us through those inevitable times when life challenges us!

*One safety tip if you want to try this: be sure parents know you've sent their children home with the bracelet. The beads are small and could be a choking hazard if the child removes the bracelet and takes off the beads ... not likely, but still worth mentioning to parents.
