    I ve meant to write a review about this book for a very long time but, sadly, never had the time so I hope to make up for that now But perhaps it was for the best because, in retrospect, this book was evenvaluable than I thought it was when I first found it My husband died suddenly when our daughter was less than three years old and I was feeling my way around helping us best deal with our grief While I had dealt intimately with the deaths of several friends after long term illnesses, I I ve meant to write a review about this book for a very long time but, sadly, never had the time so I hope to make up for that now But perhaps it was for the best because, in retrospect, this book was evenvaluable than I thought it was when I first found it My husband died suddenly when our daughter was less than three years old and I was feeling my way around helping us best deal with our grief While I had dealt intimately with the deaths of several friends after long term illnesses, I had never before lost a spouse or dealt with the grief of a young child I searched extensively for a book that dealt at least broadly with our situation while not coming across as a simple lesson plan or a bit sanctimonious with platitudes Saying Goodbye to Daddy was perfect for us The story encompasses a lot of the issues we went through, from telling her about her father s death to dealing with funeral choices The book is elegantly understated yet bravely addresses what are very hard situations to live through, and does it with beautiful and touching illustrations There is a very poignant scene where the mother brings the father s wallet to the daughter and they go through it together, discussing the picture of the daughter, and an item from an event the daughter and her father shared together that were found in it This opened the door for me to do the same with my daughter and her father s wallet I ve seen some reviewers recommend this book for children of kindergarten age and older but it was just as pertinent when my daughter was three Although I tentatively read it to her one afternoon to see how she responded to it, it was her selection to read before bed every night for months It was almost like she was fitting the pieces of her emotions into the context of the book s topics She gradually stopped selecting it but would revisit it frequently over the next couple of years If you re in a similar circumstance and have sought out this book because of that and, if so, my heartfelt condolences , I can honestly say you can t go wrong with this book It s a gem and I ll always have a warm spot for it in my heart and memories

    I enjoyed this book and the message it brings to the table, death is such a scary and sad thing and I do not think parents adults know quite how to talk about it Judith Vigna did a great job with this book and the illustrations helped to bring the story to life Clare is angry and sad when her father dies but she also does not really know what death is and I think a lot of children struggle with understanding what death is This book I think can help explain to children the meaning of death but I enjoyed this book and the message it brings to the table, death is such a scary and sad thing and I do not think parents adults know quite how to talk about it Judith Vigna did a great job with this book and the illustrations helped to bring the story to life Clare is angry and sad when her father dies but she also does not really know what death is and I think a lot of children struggle with understanding what death is This book I think can help explain to children the meaning of death but also that it is okay to not be okay, there is no perfect way in handling a death especially death of a parent This book could help a child who has maybe lost someone important in their life, or even just give children a better understanding of what death itself is

    This would be a good book to use to explain death to a preschool age child especially if the child has lost a parent I like how the mom in the story gives her daughter choices Does she want to go to the funeral, or stay home with her aunt Also, grandpa comes and stays for awhile to help out The illustrations are lovely and go perfectly with the story.
