Taylor is unexpectedly experiencing a loss. All the animals are sure they can help. The chicken wants to talk it out, but Taylor doesn’t feel like chatting. The bear thinks Taylor should get angry, but that’s not quite right either. One by one, the animals try to tell Taylor how to act, and one by one they fail to offer comfort. Then the rabbit arrives. All the rabbit does is listen . . . which is just what Taylor needs.
A book about supporting a grieving friend by taking the time to carefully, lovingly, gently listen.
A children’s book, suitable for adults! Because when referring to respect grief and grieving, the uniqueness of grievers’ personality and the way they experience a loss is the point is to listen and not to tell.
