From Publishers Weekly
Copyright 1988 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
"The poetry expresses simply but powerfully Everett's emotions, as well as his mother's quiet, understanding support...Grifalconi's superb drawings convey as much meaning as Clifton's empathetic lines in a book that is aesthetically satisfying and an effective way of helping children come to terms with loss."--Publishers Weekly
"Simple in concept yet universal in need; one must share this book quietly within and with others."--Language Arts
