I can almost guarantee that any reader who has had a close relationship with a grandparent will feel tears of remembrance as they share this book with a beloved grandchild.
The book makes it quite obvious that the child felt safe with Grandma, even when his parents weren't around. And isn't that the most important thing-- helping the child feel safe, even in the face of having a loved one no longer be readily there in his or her life.
I believe this is the perfect book for a child, at the appropriate time. It may be sometime when Grandma is sick and the parents want to prepare the child. Or it may be later... But I believe sincerely it will help children in their loss. Children grieve too, but may not fully understand what death means, or know how to express their feelings. A book might be just what is needed so that parents can talk to their child and help them remember all the love and good times shared with Grandma...
A must-read, when needed...
Grandma joins Grandpa in heaven. We love and miss Grandma very much. She was our best friend; best secret keeper and she always had a special smell. We needed each other. Grandma knew all my favorite foods and stayed with me when Mom and Dad went out or away.
I love this book! What a wonderful way to keep Grandma alive. Having lost one grandma before I was 2 and another in my 40's, I know how it can affect children. This book has a beautiful poem in the back. It should be framed and posted on the child's wall. This is another great addition to any library.
I gave this book five cheers out of 5.
