Cry, Heart, But Never Break by Glenn Ringtved - ADVISABLE

Ringtved, Glenn Cry, Heart, But Never Break, illustrated by Charlotte Pardi. PICTURE BOOK. Enchanted Lion Books, 2016. $16.95. Content: G.  

4 children live with their dying grandmother.  When Death comes to visit, they are sad and try to distract him from his mission, but he tells them a beautiful story that helps them understand.  

This is a beautiful story with a wonderful message. There is balance in life so we can appreciate the good and get through the bad.  The illustrations are slightly whimsical and very sweet.  Translated from Danish, this is a great book about death.
