The book isn't quite what I had expected, but it is touching. I ordered it as a gift for a young friend, whose mother is ill, but it is more appropriate for gifting after the death of a mother.
Soft but detailed illustrations provide a soothing back drop for a rather stark script. It is an honest rendition of the emotional pain caused by serious illness and/or loss of a loved one. The interwoven message of comfort makes this book a worthwhile addition to the library of anyone, especially those who have contact with pre-teen and younger children. Because specifics are left unsaid, this book could create a promising opportunity for discussion with any grieving child.
Very, very short. One sentence per page. Does not explore the feelings of children with ill parents beyond stating 'I miss my mom.' Only coping strategy presented is making a pillow.
