This is a delightful short book, full of splendid illustrations and so incredibly moving but also full of hope and optimism. Written as a young girl grieving for her mother. I was a lot older when my own mother died but this still brings comfort so it really is suitable for multi-ages. Would be ideal to broach the subject with young children or to have available in schools, libraries, etc. I particularly love daffodils anyway and now I will look at them with a new fondness. Wonderful, definitely worth looking at. Thanks to the author and Pump Up Your Book for the opportunity to read and give my honest opinion.
The author has written of her own experience of loosing her mother at a young age. Her hope that this book will show other girls that they are not alone in their grief. She shares how she feel as different things happen after her mother passes, like when her father gets rid of her mother’s things. This is not a book for every child, but there are certain young girls who would benefit from having read this. Someone else that has experienced exactly what they are feeling. I received this book from the author for my personal use, I was not required to give a positive review.
