Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Shelly McCoy
The young African-American narrator of this picture book tells the reader how she likes to learn about her ancestors and the closeness of family that brings their spirits to life, even if they are no longer alive. The grief that comes with a loved one that is no longer with us becomes joy in remembering them, hearing stories about them, or having someone say that you are similar to that person because of something that you do. This book helps to explain that it is okay to grieve and okay to talk to family members who are no longer with us and that, even though you might not hear them respond, they may speak in other ways. Both a comfort and a powerful message, this book encourages readers to make their ancestors proud and honor them with new accomplishments. The narrator mentions God once but is more focused on the living spirit of the person who is gone and the overall theme of missing those people in our lives. The illustrations focus on people and portray both the living and the spirits of those who are gone. Reviewer: Shelly McCoy
