Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great way to discuss a tricky topic! My four year old recently started asking very detailed questions about death, and had a lot of fear surrounding the topic. This book does a great job of explaining what death is and how people deal with it. The pictures are clear and are a great way for kids to understand what they're hearing. The afterlife is dealt with in a way that can be interpreted in a religious or secular way, depending on your family beliefs. I really appreciated that! If your child doesn't personally know and love someone who has passed away, I recommend using a paperclip to close pages 13 - 22, as the information might contribute to a child's fears more than allay them. Overall a very matter-of-fact, awesome book!
