I hadn't planned to write this post. But after the recent passing of my 97 year old grandma, it is on my heart to curate a few books on the subject because...well, we all face it at some point. My children were young when my dad died. Their Poppa was only 62. I wish I had thought to get books together for them.
But when Grandpa’s balloons begin to float away, James is heartbroken. No matter how hard he runs, James can’t catch them. One day, Grandpa lets go of the silver balloon—and he doesn’t even notice!
Grandpa no longer has balloons of his own. But James has many more than before. It’s up to him to share those balloons, one by one.
