But she lived three and a half years, giving Jack plenty of time to get to know her. When she died, Jack struggled to understand how God could take away his little sister.Everyone experiences grief, but children express it differently. Afraid to ask questions that might make someone sadder, children often keep their sorrow locked inside. Jack's mom, Annette, encouraged her son to talk about his pain, and she insightfully began a diary. Jack's questions eventually became the picture book This Book Is for All Kids, but Especially My Sister Libby. Libby Died.

    A Wonderful, Moving Tribute

    This is a truly wonderful book for both siblings and parents who have experienced loss. The thoughts expressed both warm and break your heart all at the same time. Jack's innocence is touching and very realistic. Bereaved children will certainly see themselves in his story. It is a beautiful tribute to grief and loss.

    Beautiful and Real

    This book is an excellent resource for parents and professionals who want to help children express their own feelings about loss. The author learned so much in his five short years, and he shares it with readers in an open, imaginative, captivating style.

    Very moving

    This attractive and colorful book is a very fast read, yet it brings several opportunities for giggles, tears, and some very profound glimpses into what it's like for a child to lose a sibling.

    As real as it gets

    The only book we've seen on the subject truly from a child's point of view. Libby and her brother, Jack, are making a difference in the world.

    Coping with death: through the eyes of a child

    The death of a loved one is difficult to grasp. People often have questions because they can't understand why...now imagine if you are a child. This book looks at the death of a loved one purely through the eyes of a child. In the unfortunate event of death, this book not only helps children understand, but I believe it helps adults cope. If only adults could be as honest and uncensored with their emotions as a child.
