Now that Grandpa's gone, Sarah tries to remember what he used to say about the garden. Like us, he would tell her, a part of it never dies. Everything and everyone goes on and on. But Sarah feels very sad, even though Grandma and all the relatives are with her, sharing stories and hugs. How can life go on without Grandpa?

Jacqueline Woodson created an excellent story about coping with the loss of a loved one from a child's perspective. For many children, they do not understand how to deal with the death and grief. However, after reading this they will be comforted that someone else has gone through it, and that life goes on.
