When a child loses his mommy, life gets pretty darn complicated. There are a ton of feelings and no map.
This wonderful exploration of all the different ways you might feel comes to us through the voice of a young boy whose mommy has died. In his perfectly childlike voice, he explains that he has looked for her and he really isn't sure where she has gone. We see him holding his father's hand as they visit the cemetery to leave flowers that she never seems to take. We see the other children who still have mommies to be with.
A genuine, authentic story filled with the questions and fears and anger and sadness that any child would feel. This could reassure and help parents get children talking about the feelings they might beholding inside.
A lovely resource to help children go on to the healing place reassured that they have love all around them in the family still there every day.
