Sometimes a children's book is so fantastic, I HAVE to have it in my personal library. I might not be a child anymore (only by passport) but that doesn't mean I wouldn't have loved to have such books back in the day.

I've been reading children's books on death. This is a difficult topic, and presenting it to young readers adds challenges, so let me first applaud to those brave authors who have taken up the challenge.

Love is Forever is a children's storybook narrated by a wise owl to his grandchild. It is a tender, sweet story of the gift of love that lives on, even after the grandfather's life has ended. This book is written like a love-letter from beyond the grave. Love is Forever offers comfort, hope and inspiration to those who have lost, or are facing the loss of, someone very dear.
