    Wonderful book for a greiving child/family

    This was one of two books I purchased to help my friend's children grieve and remember their mother. This book is wonderful at helping children explore and express their feelings. It reassures them that any feelings they might be having right now are okay. I absolutely love that this book can also serve as a keepsake. I highly recommend this book for a grieving child that is old enough to read and write on their own. I think it would also be a great tool at helping open conversation for the greiving family.
