I don’t think I will be able to read this book with the kids because I know for sure that this book will make me ugly cry, as it just did, every time I read it.
I love the first half but it’s the second half which made me cry harder and harder. I will never be ready for this book.
A little boy missing his dad asking questions and …his dad answering them in the second half which he will never get to hear. I just want to hug this kid so bad.
Damn adult me. Crying so hard over a children’s book. But you only know how it feels.
Thank you, author, for the advance reading copy.
Please do not feel bad about anything I have written in this review. It’s more about me than the book. It shooked me.
Very inspiring children's book with great illustrations and a wonderful message. Very heartfelt story.
This is such a wonderful book to give to a child that may be grieving a loss and not quite understanding how it works. I think this is super sweet way for children to get their questions answered as it related to grief.
Very cute and inspiring children's book. I look forward to sharing it with young readers at one of our book readings and within our church.
