Building Our House is a treasure trove of lessons for children, from the concrete (building a house takes time and work) to the abstract (cooperation and patience are invaluable when working toward a goal).
Introducing the concept of death to children is obviously difficult. Rebecca Elliott (The Owl Diaries) approaches this potential minefield-of-a-subject with a novel combination of tenderness and candor in Missing Jack.
