"Death is explained in an age-appropriate way...The text, which has a story book quality, is soothing and, above all, is suitable to this age level. The book has extra questions at the end which can even reach a bit older audience in covering other related topics in the concept of death. In spite of what is a grim and serious topic, Revell’s watercolour illustrations are colorful, lively and child-like, with nature and the child’s surroundings playing a large role. Her drawings feature a variety of ethnicities and families which lends depth to this topic. Kudos to Dr. Jillian Roberts for tackling a serious issue in such an accessible way. The author brings with her years of experience in this area, as both a teacher and a child psychologist." (CM Magazine 2016-01-08)
"Designed for adults to share with very young children, this gentle informational text begins with the part death plays in the natural world and goes on to answer the questions of children who lose grandparents...[The author] reassures young listeners that it's normal to be sad and offers ways to cope with grief...Revell's digitally painted illustrations support the text...consciously multicultural...A boon for families with young children." (Kirkus Reviews 2016-02-01)
"This helpful book...employs simple, yet truthful, responses that either immediately satisfy or give children additional tools for articulating more specific questions...An excellent choice for preschools as well as libraries." (Booklist 2016-03-15)
"Gentle but straightforward...Revell’s smudgy, brightly colored illustrations provide a friendly, reassuring backdrop for the big questions being discussed." (Publishers Weekly 2016-02-22)

Questions asked: What does death mean? Do people die too? What happens when someone dies? What happens to the person who has died? Where does that person go? What is a soul? Where does the soul go after a person dies? What is the afterlife? Will I ever see the person I love again? Why do I feel so sad? What can I do to feel better?
So happy to have this new recommendation for parents and children.
