When a close friend or family member dies, it can be difficult for children to express their feelings. This book helps boys and girls understand that death is a natural complement to life, and that grief and a sense of loss are normal feelings for them to have following a loved one's death.

Kids are encouraged to understand personal feelings and social problems as a first step in dealing with them. Written by psychotherapist and counselor Pat Thomas, these books promote positive interaction among children, parents, and teachers. The story lines are simple and direct—easily accessible to younger children. There are full-color illustrations on every page.

My husband died six months ago. I have three small children ages 4, 7, and 9 Even though I have been taking them to counseling, I had been trying to find appropriate books to help them cope with the loss of their father. I came across this book and read it to them many times. They loved the book and were very happy I purchased it for them. I left it on their night stand and have seen them read it on their own several times since. I beleive it is an outstanding book.

This book was a great help in providing some guidance for my husband and I as we tried to explain the loss of my mom to my seven year old. Thank you

I think this book is great for children who are too young to understand the metaphors in books like Lifetimes. It is also a very sensitive book for a grieving child. The only page I have a problem with is 'In books and in movies, it is usually the bad people who die. But in real life good people die too.' --I found this to be innapropriate since my young child has never seen a violent movie nor is that even a relevant statement when explaining death to a child. I will skip over that page when I read this book to my son, other than that it's a great book.

I LOVE this book! Not only have I read this book to my sisters children (ages 2 and 6) after she died, I have given it to other people I know who have children that are dealing with death. My only suggestion is to read it to your children before a loved one dies. I had a really difficult time reading through the tears.

This is a very good book for the younger child who loses someone. It has simple explanations and explains ways they can learn to cope. Nice illustrations appeal to little ones. Good book to read together.
