" I love how Douglas Wood wrote this story from the perspective of a young man who had a special relationship with his grandfather. The way he explained the grandfather's words and the young boy's remembrances touched my heart. "And for the first time in a long time, the world seemed just right." Beautifully illustrated by the gifted illustrator, P.J. Lynch. He captured the aging of the young boy well. And the attention to detail with hand placement and facial expression is amazing! " said.

"This is a gorgeous book, with beautiful text, but it's not really a kids' book. It's a memorial, to a very special grandfather, who taught the author how to appreciate and listen to nature. The writing about how the earth prays is lyrical and would be great for spiritual readings, especially since most majority-culture-written material of that kind tends to be culturally appropriative of Native American cultures. But the death of the grandfather at the end, and the author's eventual realization that he understands what his grandfather meant, really pushes it out of the picture-book milieu." said.

" Lovely story, very helpful for chidlren who've lost someone close to them! " said.

" Amazingly beautiful prose and illustrations that discuss how all of nature and life is like a prayer. Must own! " said.

" Beautifully illustrated. The text, which could be seen as the whole earth praising God, deals significantly with grief and questioning. " said.

" Note: Get the tissue box before reading this book. " said.

" Makes me cry EVERYTIME I read this aloud (or to myself!). Beautiful. Amazingly spiritual book which translates our lives, (lived full of reflection and meaning)into 'prayers'. Highly recommend to EVERYONE. " said.
