Synopsis

Always Remember by Cece Meng

After Old Turtle swims his last swim and breathes his last breath, and the waves gently take him away, his friends lovingly remember how he impacted each and every one of them. As the sea animals think back on how much better Old Turtle made their lives and their world, they realise that he is not truly gone, because his memory and legacy will last forever. Jago's gorgeous illustrations accompany Cece Meng's serene text in a book that will help children understand and cope with the death of a loved one.

Reviews

Praise forAlways Remember Without mentioning a deity or religion, the text discusses how people remember those who have died and how their lives live on beyond them. Understated, unsentimental, and gently done. --Kirkus Reviews A sweet and poignant story with multiple layers for delving deeper. --School Library Journal This makes a comforting choice for families dealing with loss. --Booklist

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
