I was taken back when I saw the smaller size and bright cheery colors of the cover and the condensed, crowded small pages of the new edition. I shared the new version with colleagues to see if they shared my disappointment (they did!).
When actually reading the new version of the book to the little boy: It was much harder to draw him in and he didn't interact easily with the illustrations. Additionally, this time, unlike last time, he made no attempt to read the words on his own. Although the text is the same, the presentation is sadly distracting.
I don't think crowding or liveliness are helpful for those with aching hearts and troubled thoughts. It is as if the book has lost its essence and synchronicity.
This is a great loss indeed, as I think the text and intent of the book remain outstanding, but the presentation seriously detracts.
Buy this wonderful book if you can in its older, brown and simple format.

As a professional who works with children and families in end-of-life situations, I have treasured this book. I realize that others are taken aback by the use of the word died. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Kellyanne
A simple book that can help open up conversation with children about the death of a sibling or friend. I'd recommend it. Doesn't get religious at all.Published on June 14, 2014 by Jeannette K. Dalton
We did not seem to care for the frequent use of the word died, we ended up supplementing it with passed away for our younger children.Published on February 17, 2013 by Engine267
