Perfection submitted by evelyn on August 15, 2018, 4:28pm This is such a gorgeous book, and one of the best ones I've seen that addresses death for kids. It's handled very simply, but the emotions in the paintings are stunning. It leaves a lot up to the reader to figure out or talk out, which makes it great for introducing death and grief to kids, or helping them work through these topics. The paintings are just beautiful- strange and colorful, with lots to pour over. A winner for sure!
