Product Details


★ “There are many books that help a young child cope with death, but this is a particularly moving one. . . Although this reverberates with the beliefs of a particular religion, the emotions and message transcend.”—Booklist, Starred Review

“The beautifully sensitive storytelling comforts readers by showing the inevitability of the circle of life in the context of strong family love. . . the emotions ring true universally. . . Pitch-perfect text and illustrations combine to create a story that will touch readers’ hearts.”—School Library Journal

“Sinykin does a commendable job of dispelling fear with empathy and tenderness through some very direct yet positive answers to a child’s uncertainty. . . Though Rachel’s quest takes place within a Jewish context, her emotions and situation are near universal, and this artful book handles both well.”—Kirkus Reviews

★ “Sinykin hits just the right balance of communication and reassurance with her storytelling, as does Swarner with her endearing and soothing illustrations. Children will relate to Rachel’s concerns and appreciate the comforting and positive messages relayed in a story that takes on a difficult and important subject.”—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
