What a wonderful tool for parents to use in helping a grieving child by using fantasy to confront reality. Julia Cook has made a difficult task so much easier with her insights and knowledge. Children can readily relate to stories with illustrations and this one makes it so easy to open up discussions about a painful topic. --Helen Fitzgerald, Author of The Grieving Child
The death of a loved one can have a lasting, major impact on a child due to limited life experiences on which to draw. This storybook by Julia Cook is an excellent resource for people to help children of all ages talk about their feelings and fears, along with providing guidance in answering difficult questions related to death and dying. --Dave Opalewski, Author of Understanding and Addressing Childrens Grief Issues and Confronting Death in the School Family
