"Moments are represented like pictographs, making this offering seem like a handbook or guide... The text's acknowledgement of the various emotions and slow healing process is much needed." --Kirkus Reviews商品の説明をすべて表示する
Kai was a heartbroken kid in the beginning of this story. His grief spilled out in ways that were sometimes difficult for his younger brother to understand. Not only was this a completely realistic way to show how someone Kai’s age would respond to the death of a parent, it made me feel a great deal of sympathy for his family. They’d just been through a very painful experience, and I wanted them to find as much peace as they possibly could.
There was so much empathy in this tale. I loved the fact that Kai, his mother, and his brother were surrounded by people who wanted to help them heal in whatever way they could. It made this family’s hardest days a little easier, and it also showed just how kind humans can be to each other when we see suffering.
One of the other things I appreciated about this book was how non-judgmental the author was of all of the different ways people express grief. It didn’t matter if Kai was crying, throwing a fit, or not feeling much of anything on a particular day. The storyline always treated him sympathetically no matter what was happening in his life. That is one of the many reasons why I’d recommend it so highly.
One Wave at a Time brought tears to my eyes. I’d wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who needs to a compassionate way to explore up the topics of death and grief.
