Reviews

A delicate subject touchingly and sensitively handled. You'll need a hanky ... Primary Times (Hampshire) Many small children will be faced with the death of someone they love and this charming picture story might help them to come to terms with it. Northern Echo Moving to the point where younger children may be upset, but explains death gently. 10/10. Daily Mirror It is an enjoyable tale and I think young children will like it and might gain some insight into grief and how to cope with it. Bereavement Care One of the best books i've read on death and loss. Sprouts
