Item Description...
Remembering her grandfather and their special walks together in the woods where she was first introduced to nature and all its wonders, a young girl must learn to cope with the loss of losing her special friend while always cherishing the special times they shared together.

Publishers Description
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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent, honest, beautiful, sad book about death  Nov 25, 2006
This is one of the books that helped my three-year-old understand and accept her grandfather's death. The "thank you" refrain gives you a way to focus on something positive without being insincere or dishonest. It's a sad book, and hard to read to a child, but--if you agree with "the experts" that it's important to be honest, share your own sadness, admit your own uncertainties, and allow children the opportunity to ask questions--it's an excellent resource.

My daughter asked for this book two or three times after I read it to her, and she has made positive comments about thanking her grandfather and remembering happy shared experiences that were clearly inspired by it and, I believe, represented healing and acceptance.

If you're in the same position I was recently, I can only say I'm sorry and good luck. Death of a loved one is hard enough for us adults. Explaining it to a child who had no concept of mortality is incredibly, poignantly sad.
read first before you read it to your child...  Sep 10, 2003
I wasn't prepared at all and when I got to the page where the little girls grandpa is not longer walking with her I couldn't read further for at least two minutes because I had to cry. This book is really so nice but you should read it by yourself first.
