Boats for Papa by Jessixa Bagley
Who knew that just a few hundred words could rip my heart completely out of my chest? I struggled to get through this one without shedding a tear. With carefully chosen prose and beautiful illustrations, Jessixa Bagley weaves a subtle tale of grappling with loss. While this story is accessible for young children, the underlying message may get lost until kids are a bit older (2nd or 3rd grade).
