  • Spectacular Children's Book!

    I felt a real connection with this book. My own dad died this year on November 9. That is one week before my 32nd birthday, and unfortunately the day of my nephew's 9th birthday. Six days after my youngest nephew's 4th birthday. I think this book will be super useful in helping children understand loss and how to cope. It is even useful for adults. I can see this book taking off fast. Five stars!!!! I received an ARC copy and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    Reviewed by Tiffany Ferrell for Readers' Favorite But I Don’t Want To Say Goodbye! is about a little girl who is dealing with the sudden loss of her father. She’s sad because she misses him and knows that he won’t be there anymore. While her mother was very sad also, she told her daughter that memories and stories will keep him alive forever. She then told her that the funeral is where people can come to share stories and memories. It also gives them a chance to say goodbye. On the day of the funeral, both the little girl and her mother were very sad and her mom told her that it will make people think about her father. They might miss him but there are so many memories that will remain. It was hard for the little girl, but she stood up in front of all her family and friends saying how much she missed him, and that she was not ready to say goodbye... I found this book so touching and heartbreaking. Death and dying is a very difficult subject to write about, especially for a child, but I think Ta’Shay Mason has done a wonderful job writing about it in a way that young children can grasp and understand. It’s a very authentic feeling as we read about the grief of the main character. It’s complicated but loss is a difficult thing to go through. There are so many different emotions and stages of grief. I also really enjoyed the illustrations. They were beautifully done and capture all the emotions one feels with loss. But I Don’t Want To Say Goodbye! is a beautifully written story and I can’t wait to see what the author writes next.

    Thanks for your feedback!
