This is a beautiful and sensitive story to help children who have suffered from wanting love from someone who can't give it or meet their needs. I've used it with my adopted children and it has been such a comfort to them. It's a wonderful story and makes sense to children and adults.
My foster children really enjoyed this book. It put it into perspective for them, that it's ok to have sad days and not to feel guilt about being happy and moving on. It is also very useful for nurture groups or individuals when they have experienced losing someone special.
