    2. A very sweet and informative book about dying and grief to help children of all ages have a discussion about it. A bear is dying, and does finally die. His friends gather around, especially his close friend, a little fox, and they talk with him through their confusion and pain and love. I really liked it a lot. Not sappy. People die, and you have to figure it out to the extent you are able. Which is never very easy, or without pain.I read it because Carmen gave it five stars. She tells more abou [...]

He knows his journey to the next place will begin soon and he doesn't want his friends to fret.Fox takes this very hard though and doesn't understand.

    4. This children's book is rather heartbreaking in all of its simplicity. It skillfully and inoffensively covers a topic difficult for children (and adults as well) to grasp: death. Bear informs his friends that he is suffering from illness and will be "going on a journey" soon. His fox friend takes the news the hardest, but finds some solace in his memories of Bear. The artwork and story both tug at my heartstrings. I imagine this book could be very useful for parents in explaining loss to very yo [...]

    5. All the animals in the forest must deal with the death of their old friend, the bear, when he goes to sleep and never wakes up.

    6. This book is sad because the bear is about to die so he has to take a long journey but he slept too long and then he died when he was asleep so that is why it is really sad.

    7. A little sad but it teaches kids about death and how to cope with it. It is an important book for a young child to read.

    8. Our dog recently passed, and trying to find a way to explain to my 4 year old son about death. This book help let my son know that our dog is in heaven and that she's waiting for us to join her.

    9. This is a lovely book for kiddos who need a little help with encountering sickness and death for the first time. It's obviously a tear-jerker and has such sweet illustrations as well as a beautiful way of communicating things. The story tells you how you can still cherish someone you loved even after they have gone on.
