We purchased this book the day after our 2 3/4 year old daughter's grandpa suddenly died. He was only 54 and our daughter loved spending time with her grandpa, playing outside, reading with him, and visiting him at his office. The words and sentences are simple, yet describe the feelings and confusion that happen after death. It doesn't go into super details, because that is not what a young child can understand. There are concrete things - "I cannot hear you. I cannot see you." There are feelings - "I was sad. I was happy. I smiled." I recommend this book for any young child who has had someone close to them die.
