Review by

Andrew did not want to go home from school because it was a sad time since his grandpa died. His family let him talk about it, be sad, and then showed him how to turn his sadness into happiness. This book showed that being sad and talking about the person you lost healthy. It took me through the stages of the healing process, something I never had to go through, but opened my eyes that it is okay to talk about it.I do not think I would use this in the classroom directly, but more on a personal level with a child that is in the situation.
