This is a beautiful rendition of the much-loved book, Tear Soup, with images in the same lush style. It is a moving, gently narrated story of how to blend together the different ingredients of your grief into a creation that will satisfy your hunger and soothe what hurts.
This is the story of Grandy, who has just suffered a big loss in her life, and so she is cooking up her own unique batch of ''tear soup.'' We get glimpses into her life as she blends different ingredients into her own grief process. Her tear soup will help to bring her comfort and ultimately help to fill the void in her life that was created by her loss.
Tear Soup would make an excellent resource for both individuals and support groups. It is filled with good, gentle advice for all those who grieve - men, women, and children alike. The female narrator is easy to listen to, and the background music is soothing without putting your audience to sleep.
Newly remastered in 2014, this DVD now includes both the English and Spanish videos in HD. The closed captioning option has also been added to the English version.
Neither live-action or animated, the Tear Soup video uses the beautiful illustrations from the award-winning book to vividly retell the story of Grandy and her loss. Families, professionals, educators and support groups will all benefit from the insights and comfort provided in this helpful production. Included with the DVD is a viewers guide and grief tips, which can assist in viewing of the DVD and starting some discussions among the viewers.

I bought this dvd as a replacement for one that was borrowed and never returned (sigh).
I facilitate a grief support group for adults at my church and this is just one of my favorites to use. It is simple in presentation and hammers the points home well (no short cuts; everyone's journey is unique; friends may disappear; it takes as long as it takes).
