Reviews

"Adults may learn a trick or two from Granddad's model of patience, acceptance, communication, and support, while sensitive children will see they are not alone and that it's OK to feel upset. . . . A sweet, specific, and straightforward tale of dealing with good and bad in the world." --Kirkus Reviews


"[Granddad's] demeanor throughout the story models how caretakers can help a child work through difficult emotions. . . . His ability to be present to [Ava] exactly how she is allows her to start to be present to herself, as she uses her senses to become aware of the trees, birds, cool air, and earth around her." - Spirituality & Practice
