But, i don’t want to say GOODBYE! by Ta’Shay Mason

A gentle, expert treatment of a difficult subject…

Mason adeptly explores grief in this heartfelt, poignant picture book. Everyone is preparing for the funeral, but it’s difficult for Mason’s little protagonist to come to terms with her father’s death. As she tries to make peace with the unfortunate situation, she realizes there is a special way she could honor her beloved dad: doing something that would help protect the earth, a cause close to her dad’s heart. Mason fills her poignant text with heartfelt emotion, adeptly capturing her young protagonist’s acute pain and sadness. The beautiful, personality-laden illustrations give the whole proceedings an air of solemn dignity that’s perfectly at par with the book’s somber mood. The realistic scenario and protagonists will strike a chord with young readers struggling with similar situation. Mason has crafted a remarkably imagined book that is profound in its understanding of the grim subject of a parent’s death.
