Sooner or later, in every young life there will occur a deeply personal loss of a beloved family member or friend. That is something every parent is keenly aware of and wanting to provide some kind of help and consolation in their child's grief. That's what author Laura Olivieri experienced in her own life. It's also what inspired her to write "Where Are You?: A Child's Book About Loss". Very nicely illustrated in full color by Kristin Elder, this story about the death of a young boy's father and the lonely absences from his life, as well as the ultimate realization that it is within his heart and memory that he will continue to be close to his father, is a simply wonderful message to share with any other child who is grieving a similar loss in their young lives. "Where Are You?" is an especially recommended addition to community library collections for the enduring benefit of their communities.

We purchased this book the day after our 2 3/4 year old daughter's grandpa suddenly died. He was only 54 and our daughter loved spending time with her grandpa, playing outside, reading with him, and visiting him at his office. The words and sentences are simple, yet describe the feelings and confusion that happen after death. It doesn't go into super details, because that is not what a young child can understand. There are concrete things - "I cannot hear you. I cannot see you." There are feelings - "I was sad. I was happy. I smiled." I recommend this book for any young child who has had someone close to them die.

We recently lost my boyfriend to a murder. I have a 9 year old and 2 year old. It is very hard for us to handle, and just imagine what it's like for a 9 year old....he actually liked this book and told me the little boy reminded him of him :(

My son died suddenly very recently leaving a very distraught four year old
son who idolised his daddy.His mummy, who is Thai, always reads to him in english so I sent this book for her to read and maybe help him through his despair and loss. My daughter in law reports that he loves the book which he asks to have read whenever he wants to talk about his daddy.
Thankyou Lauren Olivieri for this book which to our family is now priceless. I recommend it to other who find themselves in this unenviable position

This book is wonderful for young children; it is geared at 2-4 year olds. The book explains that when someone dies, he or she is no longer around. It explains that we can miss the person, but always remember them. It does a great job explaining death as a concrete idea to a child who is too young to understand death entirely. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone with a child who is young, but for children over the age of 4 or 5, I'd recommend finding a different book.

My child is just over 2 and this book was lovely to read to them. It was simple and clear. Even though children of such a young age don't really comprehend the permanence of death, this book can be read over and over without causing littlies distress or confusion. I highly recommend it!

I do think like everyone who reviewed this item before that it is geared toward younger kids... however, when trying to help a child cope with a loss, more likely this child will treasure this book and keep it for a long time because it will remind him of the help it provided during hard times.
Now, everything was fine until I turned to the last page and I read the part about the author... she talks about her divorce and her husband's suicide. On the last page of a kid's book? Seriously? While I understand this happens all the time I dont think it is appropiate.
We all know how kids are once they start reading, they will read from the very beginning until the very end... helping them cope with a loss is hard enough to put thoughts in their mind about divorce and suicide. Returning it!

I bought this for my 9 year old after her Dad passed away. She commented it would be better for younger kids and seemed more appropriate for a Grandparents passing. It did seem to me to be geared more towards the 4-7 year old age range.
