Excellent book to read to children on the subject of dying and funerals. Betsy learns of the sudden death of her friend Peter and her parents help her cope with this and all her questions . Betsy's story can be shared by parents and children to help them with a difficult time , and to show children that , as Betsy learned , people may die but memories are forever. Well done story for children .
