Ms. Plourde has created a powerful book . A book of separation, living , death and dying. The story breathes life, lives and returns back. She used many beautiful words and the illustrator crafted the perfect muted pictures. There were many spoken words in quotes, which made this book personal. This book has the appearance as if the pictures were laid atop of a p redesigned textured paper. This book is so compassionate and again I state, with loving tender words. ( )

It was probably not the best book for me to read today, but I think it's a good book to help children deal with grief. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0525469923, Hardcover)

This glowing picture book, by turns playful and poignant, portrays the tender relationship between a grandfather and granddaughter as they appreciate nature together over the years. They take their first walk in the woods when the little girl is barely old enough to toddle; their last when Grandfather can only shuffle along. Each walk brings a new discovery-a sneaky snake, flashing fireflies, teardrops on a spiderweb-and sometimes a lesson about saying good-bye. One day the girl walks alone, stronger because she learned from her grandfather how to be grateful for life's fleeting gifts.

Illustrated by Jason Cockcroft.
