Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 3-Jewish funeral practices are explained carefully and gently from the perspective of an 11-year-old boy on the first anniversary of his grandfather's death. No special knowledge is needed to understand this book-each step is thoroughly detailed. A glossary and notes to parents about handling death with children are included. Although Techner represents Orthodox Jewish practice, the book was published by the Reform movement and thus has a more universal appeal. Barbara Pomerantz's Bubby, Me, and Memories (UAHC, 1983), told from a five-year-old girl's point of view, touches on the seven days after death when the family observes the shivah, and maintains that a person can be kept alive through memories. In Moshe Spero's Tzedeh (Simcha, 1984), a little boy mourns his grandfather and is given his siddur (prayer book). That title also has a long section on how to explain death to children. Sandy Lanton's Daddy's Chair (Kar-Ben, 1992) is about healing after death. Because of its different perspective, Techner's book is a worthwhile purchase for all Jewish libraries.-Marcia Posner, Federation of New York and the Jewish Book Council, New York City

I teach lifecycles for 4th graders and this book is excellent. Really does a great job explaining the Jewish process of death and all of the symbolism. Highly recommended.
