When Elke, his mum, went looking to books for answers, she found nothing, except more emptiness. An incredibly determined individual, she recognised a need to share her story.
A beautiful book that will undoubtedly help so many; I would highly recommend it.
I can think of no better way to communicate with a very young child about a sudden death. This book will be highly recommended on our suggested reading list.
Finding a book on sudden death suitable to be read with a pre-school child is very difficult; this one fills the gap admirably.
A young person experiencing death is more common than we imagine. This book addresses the issue with courage, honesty and truthfulness.
It embodies the best in writing and illustration for children.
Throughout the book, love, sadness and grieving together are entwined, and the final message of: 'It's okay to be sad but it's okay to be happy too' gives the message I think all child bereavement practitioners would want to give a grieving child.
