Judy Silverman (Children's Literature)
This book is a treasure. Sarah's grandma marries Abe, and Sarah has a new grandpa. He does a lot with Sarah, from eating spaghetti with sauce that gets all over their shirts to doing magic tricks and drawing wonderful pictures that Sarah hangs next to her bed. Sarah's family is devastated when Grandpa Abe dies. Russo describes the funeral ceremony (Sarah doesn't go to the cemetery) and shiva, the Jewish custom of remaining in the house for a week after a death. She allows the grandmother a sleepless few nights and many tears, and finally Grandma and Sarah begin to accept Abe's death. This is a wonderful book about love and loss. 1996, Greenwillow, $15.00 and $14.93. Ages 4 to 7.
