VIDEO: Wilmington Native Tracy Harding Writes Children’s Book To Help Kids Cope With The Loss Of A Loved One

WILMINGTON, MA — In the latest episode of WCTV’s “Where’s Wilmington?,” host Lisa Kapala interviews Tracy Harding, author of “Anna’s Big Wish,” a children’s picture book.

Below is a preview from Wilmington Community Television:

Loss and grief are two of the hardest emotions we experience as human beings. For children, the loss of a loved one can be very difficult to understand and even more difficult to explain in a way that is gentle and comforting. When Tracy Harding lost her mother to Lung Cancer, she knew she had to write a children’s book in honor of her mom to help children deal with their feelings after a loss. In “Anna’s Big Wish”, Harding takes us on the journey of how Anna copes with the passing of her grandmother. This is Harding’s first book and she is generously donating ALL proceeds from the sale of this beautifully illustrated story to Brigham and Women’s Hospital because of the outstanding care they gave her mom.
