Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Silverman
Aimed at Jewish children and their parents, the devices used to remember the dead are universally useful. Mourning doesn't end when the week of Shiva ends, Liss-Levinson says, but saved memories can make it less painful. She's realistic: "Sometimes, you feel someone always criticizes you....This is a page for you to write out your complaints. If you want it to be private, you can fold the page over when you are finished...." There's a page for a Special Recipe, and memories of the grandparent making it. There are pages for holidays, the gravestone, and a family tree. This book could be adapted, as there are significant things every family uses in remembering the dead. But the author has provided a great way to start. Th suggested age range depends on the child's reading ability and on the family's individual way of dealing with death.

    Extremely Helpful

    I found this book extremely helpful and was very grateful to have it when my father died. I have six year old twins and both of them (girl and boy) were very interested in reading it and doing the 'exercises'. I highly recommend this book.
