The message of loss can be interpreted at any depth. I honestly have an adult in mind to buy this for.
It’s beautiful, sincere, and perfectly done.
The simple little book is amazing. The book works for children and adults. I wish I could hand copies to every person needing to support someone struggling through a tough time, especially grief.

The book was simple and relatable to simple and complex struggles and for all age groups.
PLEASE MAKE A BOARD BOOK! The pages are hard for him to turn. Would love a more toddler friendly version.
