Beautiful, touching story about a family dealing with the loss of their mother from cancer. Great to use to help children better understand that our memories of our lost loved one can't be stolen by cancer. I think that it should be a"must -have" for teachers, Sunday School workers and anyone else that may possibly need to help a child deal with death and cancer.

I work as an Oncolology nurse and am frequently asked how to talk to children about the death of a parent or a loved one. This book is a great tool to help facilitate those conversations we don't know how to begin. It is simply written and describes some of the hard hitting fears, questions and behaviors that crop up when children are faced with the death of a family member. Ms. Rovere's book is a courageous look into the feelings that children can be overwhelming to children. It is written for kids and opens the door to discussion that can allow the healing process to begin. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking help a child going through this tremendously challenging life experience.
