Product description

Review

"These are time-sculpted themes-the bond between a child and a grandparent, a child's first experience of death, the comfort of continuity and connection to the natural world--and MacLachlan gives them her particular stamp of plain speaking and poetry."--The Horn Book

"An intense, rewarding read."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"It's rare to find a children's book that deals so well with death as part of life, offering kids an effective approach to coping with sadness that incorporates humor, love and joy."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"MacLachlan handles a familiar theme with grace, providing a lens into an uncanny intergenerational bond, as well as the kindness and generosity of love."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"The quiet rhythms of the story and the gentle banter of the dialogue make this an ideal group read aloud, but plenty of young readers will simply find it the perfect book to curl up with on their own."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)

From the Back Cover

Jake’s grandfather, Billy, hears the talk of birds, is eighty-eight years old, and is going to live forever. Even when Billy gets sick, Jake knows that everything will go on as always. But there’s one thing Billy wants: to rebuild the sod house where he grew up. Can Jake give him this one special thing?

From beloved author Patricia MacLachlan comes a poignant story about what we do for the ones we love, and how the bonds that hold us together also allow us to let each other go.
