To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Lovely book that gives the perfect opportunity for parents and children to talk about dying and how to cope with the feelings that come with bereavement. I bought it for a 5 year old but would be good for older children too
As recommended by my bereavement counsellor, I bought this for my 2.5 year old son when his Grandpa died suddenly. The story is clear and the language was easy enough for him to understand. It was a difficult time for me, and this book helped me to explain to my son that whilst Grandpa was not coming back, we had his memories.
Having visited the city library, first I am in a position to report that there are a lot of very strange books for kids on this subject. This book is not one of those! It is excellent. The language is simple and concise with beautifully sympathetic and empathetic art work. The book starts by briefly covering the life cycle and the ways that people can die - without being graphic or scary. It then moves on to explaining funerals and the ways a person might feel after someone they love has died. It ends by discussing how we can remember people and what might happen after death, in terms of cultural beliefs, without talking specifically about religions. It's a comforting book and has really helped my four year old understand his Grandpa's death.
I bought this for my six year old daughter after my mom died. It was good to sit and read with her and talk about the questions the book asks and open a line of communication. I definitely recommend it, I liked that it wasn't geared toward any particular religion or culture and the language was easy to comprehend.
