      As a friend of the author it is hard for me to put into words the beauty of this book without feeling that I might be a wee bit bias. However by getting that confession out of the way I hope that anyone reading this review understands that I would not give it 5 stars unless it was one of our top selling books. Not counting the books that were sold during a special event that we participated in with the author, we sold twice as many copies of My Yellow Balloon than we did of our other top selling [...]

      Joey is a boy around six years old and he is enjoying himself at the carnival before he spots a man with an enormous handful of balloons. They are of many different colors so at first Joey cannot decide which color he wants. In response the balloon man grabs a string at random and hands Joey a yellow balloon. At that instant Joey realizes that he has found his favorite toy.From that point on the two of them are inseparable, whatever Joey is doing and wherever he is doing it the balloon is with h [...]

      Tiffany Papageorge’s "My Yellow Balloon" tells the story of a boy named Joey and the balloon he brings home from a carnival. Joey loves his yellow balloon and takes it with him everywhere, until one day it floats away into the sky and is lost forever. Accompanied by beautiful illustrations by Erwin Madrid, the book discusses the stages of grief a child might feel at a loss-- including anger, confusion, and deep sadness. It’s a difficult task to delve into the topic of loss in a picture book [...]

      My Review: This is a story about a boy dealing with the loss of his favorite Balloon. It also gives an insight to the meaning of grief and loss, and how children handle both.The carnival had come to town and Joey was so excited that his parents could barely keep up with him. Then he saw hundreds of big, bright balloons and couldn’t wait to get one. The balloon man handled him a big bright yellow balloon with a string tied to Joey’s wrist. Joey spent every moment with the balloon playing unti [...]

      Review copy: Final copy from publisherThe illustrations in My Yellow Balloon definitely caught my attention. The story begins with a carnival and the illustrations are vibrant and lively. The clothing hints at an earlier time with the gentlemen in suits, the ladies in long skirts and everyone wearing hats. The pictures just invite readers to dive in and visit with the characters in the past. In addition, the illustrations support the story very well. When the boy loses his balloon, we see the wo [...]

      Giant balloons are fantastically fun, bright, shiny, squeaky and bouncy. What would you do with a giant yellow balloon?Joey loved the carnival and was excited it had finally come to town. He could smell the popcorn and hear the music. When he saw a funny little man with a giant mustache holding a gazillion balloons he was suddenly mesmerized. The balloon man looked at Joey and tied a bright yellow one on Joey’s wrist and soon Joey and his new balloon became inseparable. Joey and his yellow bal [...]

      I found the illustrations of this book to be beautiful, which helps to make up for the story. I realize that this book was written for younger children (early elementary school age) but I still found the boy's attachment to the balloon over the top. He takes the balloon with him everywhere and the balloon never deflates. One day the balloon breaks loose and just floats away in the sky, and the boy is HEARTBROKEN. I'm thinking, just get the heck over it.The boy mopes around for at least a couple [...]

      What a darling book! Set in the 1930s with the most beautiful illustrations by Erwin Madrid to accompany, MY YELLOW BALLOON is a children's book destined to become a classic to help children deal with and process grief. No where in the book does anyone die, which I especially appreciated--knowing full well that the book can be adapted to include the loss of a lovey (blanket, toy), to a pet, and family member or friend, MY YELLOW BALLOON talks about loss in an honest, engaging, and reassuring man [...]

      Joey and his balloon (bestfriend) do everything together till one day he loses the balloon. The balloon floats up to the sky and is gone forever. Good book to help kids understand lose and how to cope with it.

    10. Julia on said:

      This was a beautiful children's book with gorgeous pictures that deals with loss and grief. The concept is a hard one to cover with children, especially little ones so this is one of those good introductory books to start off with although I noticed the feeling of guilt wasn't covered within the book like I think it should be. The writing was simple and clear but altogether it wasn't the story that really made this book. Instead the majority of this book could be told by the pictures from when t [...]

      Full review at: unleashingreaders/?p=4773This book’s illustrations blew my mind. They are beautiful! Before I can talk about anything else, I definitely have to address how impressed I was by them. Luckily, the story is just as good as the illustrations. My Yellow Balloon is about Joey and his yellow balloon and the loss of the balloon he became attached to. This is the second book I’ve read recently about loss and grief. I think it is so important that there are picture books out there for [...]

      I began by reading this book with my little three-year-old friend; he was excited when he saw the bright big yellow balloon on the front cover.We sat and he snuggled up with me, and helped turn the pages, he loved the bright colors as they drew him into the story. I changed the little boys name to my little friends, and he loved it. He too was mesmerized by all of the balloons in so many colors, and we picked out and named a lot of them.We talked about how he felt when the disaster happened, and [...]

      The text features of this book are remarkable. When the color of the illustrations shift, my stomach felt like they were tied in knots, and I felt Joey's sorrow. The language used to depict the ways Joey comes to terms with his grief are realistic and will be very helpful for children. This book should be a staple in classrooms. Even if students are not experiencing grief at the time of the story, it will help them cope with, unfortunately, the inevitability of this topic.

      I won this book off of librarything. A very unique children's story with the underlying message of experience loss in life. The illustrations where very beautiful and my 6 year old daughter enjoyed it. I did have to explain the profound message to her more, especially with the picture of the balloons at the end with all the peoples names on it! I found that part so touching I got a little teary eyed. Beautiful book!

    15. Jillian Heise on said:

      I was conflicted on this book. The striking illustrations clearly set it in the past, and it deals with universal themes of loss and grief, but I didn't totally connect with it. I understood the analogy being attempted, but I couldn't quite buy into it because I couldn't understand how a boy would become so overly attached to a balloon, so that's where my struggle came in.

      Dealing with grief and loss in a meaningful way in children's books. This is one I would use with students to discuss these difficult topics. Please visit my blog for a full review.

      While the lost balloon is a clunky metaphor for the loss of someone special, this book may enable kids to think about loss and grief in a more manageable way.

    18. Edward Sullivan on said:

      An affecting story about grief and loss but the illustrations look too much like stills from an animated film.
