This is a beautifully illustrated book aimed at helping young children deal with the loss of a loved one. The idea is that loved ones who have died visit children in their dreams. Fitzgerald wrote the book to help children feel connected to and loved by family members who have died.
One aspect of this little book is that those who have died visit children in their dreams as angels. Christians who believe the Bible indicates angels are a created order of beings very different from humans may find this concept troubling.
This is a beautiful book with a touching message. I do encourage parents to clarify the difference between humans who have died and angels.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
