My Review
This is a book that is perfect for helping children deal with loss. It also came at a good time for me as I recently lost a member of my family to rainbow bridge. While this book is clearly intended for children I myself took some comfort from it as well. The author does an amazing job at handling such a difficult topic in a manner that children can understand and benefit from.
