My Yellow Balloon was featured on the cover and throughout the issue of Foreword Reviews Spring 2015.

Boy loves balloon. Boy loses balloon. Boy breaks down, grief stricken. Slowly, heartbreakingly, skies clear and boy learns to smile again.



How it all began

It all started in ninth grade (and I won’t say how many years ago that was for me…). My English teacher, Ms. Cannon, taught a “Death and Dying” unit for our class. The unit culminated in one final project, where we could choose one of 15 exercises. I chose the last one: 15) Write a children’s book explaining death to them.

I was the only person in the class to choose number fifteen.

Ms. Papageorge has transformed her middle school essay into an award-winning children’s book. With its depiction of a child who must learn to deal with loss and letting go, “My Yellow Balloon” is helping readers young and old navigate significant transformations in their own lives.
