I did not like his book, for what I wanted it did not meet my expectations. It was more for children that have lost a father not the loss of a sister.

An especially recommended addition to community library collections for the enduring benefit of their communities July 20 2009
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sooner or later, in every young life there will occur a deeply personal loss of a beloved family member or friend. That is something every parent is keenly aware of and wanting to provide some kind of help and consolation in their child's grief. That's what author Laura Olivieri experienced in her own life. It's also what inspired her to write "Where Are You?: A Child's Book About Loss". Very nicely illustrated in full color by Kristin Elder, this story about the death of a young boy's father and the lonely absences from his life, as well as the ultimate realization that it is within his heart and memory that he will continue to be close to his father, is a simply wonderful message to share with any other child who is grieving a similar loss in their young lives. "Where Are You?" is an especially recommended addition to community library collections for the enduring benefit of their communities.

Perfect for almost 3 year old Nov. 7 2010
By Juliet - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

A good choice. Nov. 16 2009

We recently lost my boyfriend to a murder. I have a 9 year old and 2 year old. It is very hard for us to handle, and just imagine what it's like for a 9 year old....he actually liked this book and told me the little boy reminded him of him :(

My thanks to the author Sept. 12 2010

My son died suddenly very recently leaving a very distraught four year old
son who idolised his daddy.His mummy, who is Thai, always reads to him in english so I sent this book for her to read and maybe help him through his despair and loss. My daughter in law reports that he loves the book which he asks to have read whenever he wants to talk about his daddy.
Thankyou Lauren Olivieri for this book which to our family is now priceless. I recommend it to other who find themselves in this unenviable position

Not what I expected... Oct. 6 2011
By Melissa Grazia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I do think like everyone who reviewed this item before that it is geared toward younger kids... however, when trying to help a child cope with a loss, more likely this child will treasure this book and keep it for a long time because it will remind him of the help it provided during hard times.
Now, everything was fine until I turned to the last page and I read the part about the author... she talks about her divorce and her husband's suicide. On the last page of a kid's book? Seriously? While I understand this happens all the time I dont think it is appropiate.
We all know how kids are once they start reading, they will read from the very beginning until the very end... helping them cope with a loss is hard enough to put thoughts in their mind about divorce and suicide. Returning it!
