The story is bright and memorable, a charming way to think about transforming loss, in beautifully written rhyme. Grownups and children alike will enjoy the beautiful illustrations, and the section at the end of the story, with questions, notes, wonderful details and teachings about the Park, all highlighting the importance of urban public parks.
