This time of year, we see a lot of books with bunnies and eggs, right? Ah, spring! Ah, new life!
But life is peppered with moments of grief and sorrow and death, too. The Grim Reaper is something to be dreaded and feared, but in this book, keeping the Grim Reaper away is not a solution. We all face death, even children, and it’s important to have ways to talk about it, whether your goldfish or great aunt or sister or parent has died. This book ends with hope and joy and the recognition that it’s ok that life goes on. We remember people. We carry them with us through our days.
Cry, Heart, But Never Break by Glenn Ringtved and Charlotte Pardi
