This book boldly fills a gap!

"I don't have an Uncle Phil Anymore" offers us a touching and real story that makes a difference in the lives of children who are grieving. I read it to my own children and it started a meaning and needed conversation about death. This book makes a thoughtful gift for a child, family or friend in grief.

Reminds young and old that our loved ones truly do live on.

I congratulate Marjorie White Pellegrino on her heartfelt book "I Don't Have an Uncle Phil Anymore" which explains death to children. At a time when parents are often understandably caught up in their own grief, this book is invaluable in explaining this passage point in life. I believe the book also helps convey to our children, and reminds adults, that life is precious and unpredictable. Although I first read this book at our local library I decided to purchase one to include in my own family library. My children particularly enjoyed hearing how our loved ones live on in our hearts. Thank you for a book that reaches out to the spiritual needs of young and old alike.

It's ok to feel sad when an Uncle Phil dies.

" I Don't Have an Uncle Phil Anymore" is ageless. I am 55 yrs. old and as I read this book I had tears in my eyes. It's hard to comprehend death at any age. "I Don't Have an Uncle Phil Anymore" is designed for the young, however it is ageless and will help the reader understand dying can be ok. This can be a lifelong lession many of us never learn.

Beautifully written and illustrated.

Author Majorie White Pellegrino is able to delve into the mind of a child and help us all remember the confusion and heartbreak we felt and still, feel at the death of a loved one. She brings to life all the questions and feelings that children have when someone they love dies. Through her writing, she helps us to help our children understand the rituals surrounding death from relatives crying to the trip to the cemetery. Although the book will definately bring more than one tear to your eyes it ends on an uplifting note that Uncle Phil will live on forever in the hearts of those who loved him.

A touching story about a young boy and his uncle.

While attending a workshop, I heard the author read this story, and I have been waiting impatiently for its publication. It is such a well written, heart felt story of a young boy experiencing the death of his uncle. Although it will bring a tear to your eye, it is hopeful and uplifting in spirit. However, you may find the title a bit misleading. Even though his beloved uncle has died, the boy still has an Uncle Phil and he obviously always will.
