Review:
Dealing with the death of an expected and much-wanted baby as told through the words of the little boy who would have been the ‘big brother’, this book with its’ simple one-line per page story and appealing illustrations is a knockout. The difficult subject is handled with sensitivity and with no attempt to pretend that there is an easy happy ending. The notes at the end of the book on helping children to grieve and cope with such a loss would be of great use to those, who grieving themselves, have to try to find answers to the child/children’s ‘why?’
