I read this in the bookstore and it made me cry. Wonderful concept and wonderful lesson. I am a Christian, and my atheist spouse also liked the book, so I think it is appropriate for a diverse range of families. The fox dies, its friends mourn but focus on happy memories, and a tree grows where the fox's body was. I was a bit concerned about the tree - you know, what if children are upset that there is no real tree. So parents might want to explain that the tree can be seen as the reality of the memories of the loved one that is now gone, and the strength and love that this memory gives to those who are still living. This book is maybe better for an older child, or for a young child as a launching pad for a discussion about what the book means. I thought the illustrations were lovely, and it is very rare for childrens' books to deal with death, so

Beautiful, but needs more concrete language 22 Nov. 2013
By tanya - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a lovely book and I have no doubt I'll use it with grieving children in my practice. The only issue I have is that it refers to fox dying as "going to sleep forever". It's best to use concrete words like "fox died" because some children are confused and may hope the loved one will 'wake up' again, or fear they themselves may die when they go to sleep.
