Sinopsis:

This simple, tender story is about the death of a beloved grandmother. But the story is told by Grandma herself, as she peacefully says goodbye to her sleeping children and grandchildren and then, in turn, to all the earthly things she has loved and rises to her new home—in the stars. Serene and beautiful, this book is for all children and their families, regardless of religious beliefs. It's assurance that love remains forever will be inexpressibly comforting to both children and adults who grieve.

From Booklist:

Ages 3-7. Every adult who turns to books to help children cope with death is looking for something different: the one volume that represents the individual's own beliefs, emotions, and aesthetics. Although no single selection can satisfy everyone, this unusual picture book will be a comforting and even moving choice for many children and adults. Grandma, who narrates the book, dies on the first page. The opening text appears in a sage green that looks fittingly wan against the lavender background: "I was so sick. So sick that I died. Now I feel . . . ." After the elision, the sentence finishes in white, which shines robustly from the same background: "wonderful. And now it's time to say goodbye." Grandmother seems to radiate light as she stops to say goodbye to her sleeping family members, the dog, the cat, the pictures she's painted, and (one last time) the children, before walking through the garden and rising over the town, above the earth, and into the stars. The tone of the book is matter-of-fact, the text is short and simple, and the artwork is luminous. A solid black line defines the figures and objects in the illustrations, except the form of the grandmother, which is drawn with a multicolored line reminiscent of crayon-resist art. Done on computer, the artwork creates surprisingly radiant effects on the page, while reflecting the understated, affectionate tone of the text. The illustrations convey not just the fact of death, but the mystery of it, the love that transcends it, and the wonder of it all. Carolyn Phelan
