I rarely read children's books, but when I do, I like to read them out loud to children. Yes, this is a beautiful book, but buyer beware - it is targeted at your heartstrings and it will hit hard and fast. I don't think I could find any parent (or parent on deck) that could possibly read this without tearing up. I'm not sure how it is from the children's perspective to watch their parents attempt to emotionally come to terms with their departure from their children's lives, but I bet it's rather unsettling. This written for parents - not children.
