"In a story that respects grief's slow pace, Cordell's writing and artwork together carry grace and heart." * Publishers Weekly, starred review *
"A poetically beautiful story of grief and healing mirrored in the natural world has a touch of magical realism as a young girl processes her emotions and realizes that endings lead to beginnings." * School Library Journal *
"Grief can be particularly difficult to address with young children, and Cordell wisely eschews the platitudes often associated with this emotion, choosing instead to demonstrate the healing powers of nature and time." * Booklist *
"Provides youngsters with a talking point for their feelings about bereavement, and the depiction of a summer of adjustment to life without the loved one is sympathetic and patient. (Recommended.)" * Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books *
