This book dives right into the weighty topic that most adults prefer to avoid thinking or talking about: death. It explains the practical aspects and gracefully navigates the nuances of emotion and community that surround something we all experience.

This book is beautiful! It helps explain death without getting complicated, it addresses the feeling that can come with death, and it offers strategies for dealing with those feelings. I love it!
I haven’t read it with my kids yet but I previewed it, of course, and found it to be rather wonderful. It helps to frame things in a very concrete way for kids, but also leaves room for families to share their beliefs. I wish I’d had access to such a book when I was a kid but am so thankful to have this for my kids now. ♥️
Content is good but definitely too long. Pictures/illustrations would also be useful.
Between my young daughter and my autistic son, the loss of their "tia" during the Pandemic to cancer sandwiched between losing their pet bunny and their beloved, faithful pup to degenerative muscle disease....this book provided the start; the first breath and the very words to provide an empathetic approach to talking through death while we were (as adults) absolutely mired and stuck in the deepest grieving and anxiety. I didn't have it in me to research how to start the conversation. I didn't have the strenth, and so this book became a dear friend; a gentle hug around the shoulders while encouraging me that I could do this. I could have this conversation and I could answer their follow up questions because I had help. Between resources like this and therapists, I don't know what we would have done. Thank you from the deepest parts of my heart.
It is an excellent book for talking with kids about death. We were really struggling to find resources to help our 5 and 7 year old children about the many deaths in our family. It was an excellent tool for navigating hard conversations.
