I was first introduced to this book via my daughter's kindergarten when my father was very ill and am so grateful for it. Not only does it describe death to children in such an eloquent, sensitive way but it offers something tangible to begin the hard journey of grief and the discussions that will follow. All families should end this book if they are suffering the loss of a loved one or even a pet. It helped prepare my daughter for the loss of her pappa and gave her a sense of peace knowing that every living thing has a beginning and an ending with living in between. We revisit this book often - I couldn't recommend it more highly - a skilled author writing about the most difficult topic.show moreby Jason Diprose
