ABOUT the BOOK
This a story about a happy, young boy named George who was loved by everyone. George enjoyed music, playing card games, and bringing cheer to others by baking them special cakes. Shortly before his birthday he became ill and his friends began planning his party with the hope that he would be well by his birthday.

"This is a great colorful book for a child experiencing grief or loss. The author did a wonderful job navigating through a challenging topic." Lisa M.
"It was a good book and brought up good discussions." Annamaria S
What a lovely, easy read written to help children understand and cope with the transition from sickness through death process. This is such a difficult topic for them to comprehend. Dr. Moore's compassion and kindness shines through in her message of how one can handle such a sensitive subject. I highly recommend this book.
Hey, I read the book. I like how it’s not drawn out. George death is discussed within the first few pages. I also liked how you highlighted the different responses people could have to death such as them offering support by checking in with the family and some that stayed away due to being unsure. The book also highlighted how the friends discussion of the situation changed as time passed. I also love how the book speaks to the family’s natural healing process. This image is really good as well. Rayshawn
