Thank you for a beautiful book
My 7 year old son and I listened to this together and it inspired such wonderful conversation between us. Although tragic and hard, it is something we all face. I believe we should prepare our children and through reading we can help them learn and cope for the ups and downs of life. I look forward to watching the movie with him now as well.
