My father died unexpectedly and my daughter's pre-K teachers took this out of the school library for her (and dedicated the book to the memory of my father). It was the only book that made her feel better and reminded her of all of the wonderful memories of her grandfather. I've now ordered our own copy so we can read it together for a long time. I highly recommend this book for any Jewish child who recently lost a loved one.
