      Glad you took the detour! Yes, it’s a fact of life that we need these kinds of books along with the more lighthearted ones.

    I took the detour, too, and it was WELL worth it. I cannot WAIT to get this title on my shelf and use it in my work with children who grieve. Thank you!!

    That title grabbed me…I had to look. What a great tool to have in helping others, young and old deal with grief.

      Yes! And I would venture to say that it helped me, too.
