by Anastasia Higginbotham
"This [picture-book] exploration of grief and mourning recognizes the anger and confusion that a child feels around death while offering possibilities for celebrating life and love."
Target age: 4 to 12
Clearly written to validate and respect a child's feelings, this book is a useful resource for parenting collections or patrons looking for a relatable exploration of death. -- School Library Journal
It's [an] exact mix of true-to-life humor and unflinching honesty that makes Higginbotham's book work so well, and many of the plainspoken sentiments she includes, as well as several included ideas for how to remember and honor those who have departed, may be eye-opening for readers facing grief themselves. -- Publishers Weekly
