My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Oh my gosh, I love this book SO much! It's a beautifully simple explanation of the five stages of grief, known as the Kübler-Ross model, told through the story of a little fly that gets swept up into a vacuum. Readers go through all the stages with him: denial, bargaining, anger, despair, and acceptance. The artwork showing the little fly's experiences are gorgeous and silly enough to keep the deep messages being shared lighthearted and accessible for children. I'd recommend this for anyone wanting to talk with children about death or feelings in general, since we really all should be so lucky to learn about these common stages of emotions which we all have to deal with when facing a life-changing event.
