The book talks about how the little girl can think of the good times she had with her daddy when he was alive (my daughter doesn't even remember her father). The little girl talks to a neighbor about it and that is great but it was kinda disturbing because the little girls mother did not know where she was. She was looking for her little girl and found her in the backyard of a neighbors house talking about her dad. The mom says something about that the little girl should talk to her when she is feeling sad because "that's what moms are for". I think sometimes it is easier to talk to other people than just your mom, especially about something so upsetting to them both. When the little girl talked to the neighbor, the neighbor suggested the little girl wrote a letter to her dad. I don't think her mother would have ever thought of suggesting this.
I would have liked to have read more ways to help cope with the loss of a parent. It would have been nice to have more suggestions for different situations. The last few pages of the book does do a good job of giving suggestions and of common Psychological issues and reactions. It is helpful for the surviving parent although I would have liked to see some ways that families could get some professional help and where to look for the help.
