When Grey Came to Stay


When Grey comes home instead of Julie’s dad, Julie must learn to navigate all the big, unpredictable feelings loss brings. When Grey Came to Stay is the hopeful story of one girl’s journey through grief as she learns to celebrate her father in the midst of sadness.

When Grey Came to Stay is a powerful social story that normalizes and validates the ongoing, non-linear struggle that many children have with grief. By personifying and normalizing the emotions surrounding grief, kids learn they are not alone!
