"The title does not do it justice. [Never too Young to Know: Death in Children's Lives] is far more than the subtitle suggests. ... Silverman has done well to distil the breadth of research covered by this text ... there is great skill in being able to extract the essence of a field and place it in a larger framework. ... It is above all else a book where children are given center stage."--Death Studies
