I especially love that the story plays into a toddler’s developing feelings of empathy.
So charming that now I’m looking forward to treasuring more children’s stories from Oliver Jeffers.
I'm not sure I would recommend this for a regular bed time read, but if you have young kids who have lost someone they love, it is a really good way to open the door to conversations about grief, loss and finding a way to be happy after someone we love dies. Also - if you've lost someone - read it by yourself first - it's a tear-jerker! Lovely book.
