Book Review - My Aunt Bonnie: A Child's Story of Love and Loss

About the Book
The story starts during happy times, with visits to Atlanta, birthday parties, and a collection of cars. In the fall, there is a sad turn of events when Aunt Bonnie dies and goes to heaven. Will is left to work out his grief and comes to a "smile across his heart" as he remembers his teaching and thinks of what Aunt Bonnie may be doing in her new home.

My Take on the Book
This was a great book that talks of the loss of a loved one that speaks to a child in a way a child can relate to and understand. The loss of a loved one can be traumatic and confusing for a child, and especially if the person is close, this becomes even more difficult for a child to grapple with. This book provides a child with a better understanding of death and what it means as well as provides parents or loved ones a platform by which they can talk to their children about this loss. The book was well written with quality illustrations and a strong story line. I highly recommend this for any family who has lost a loved one as this is a book that will greatly assist with the grieving and healing process!
