    3.

    15. I ve developed a love for Juvenile novels in the last year They can be so vibrant, so genuine, so worth recommending to everyone, including adults Each Little Bird That Sings is going on my Juvenile lit evangelization list along with The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate, Budd, Not Buddy, Here Lies the Librarian, and The True Meaning of Smekday It s a perfect book about death and life for young people who are dealing with it for the first time It s also about serving others, friendship, cooking, readi [...]

    16. I really liked the idea of this book along with its quirky setting and family However, when I am mindful that this is a book for children it seems a little confusing The author made a point of using names that were very unique Because of this, I spent a portion of the beginning of this story just trying to sort out who people were The story is about a young girl named Comfort Snowberger who is raised in a funeral home She has had to deal with death for a living and even writes obituary notices f [...]

    17. What s a good onomatopoeia for blowing your nose The cover illustration by Marla Frazee is beautiful but I think the original cover that shows Comfort and Dismay in profile rather than straight on might provide a better sense of the mood of the book Now don t get me wrong this is an absolutely fabulous bildungsroman Yes, I love this word that deals wonderfully with the monster that is grief Comfort Snowberger is a ten year old force to be dealt with She has grown up around death at her family fu [...]

    18. This was a beautiful, but very very sad story about a family of funeral home folks The main character, 10 year old Comfort Snowberger aspires to be a journalist and practices by writing life notices as opposed to obituaries about folks in her community as they pass away Her family is incredibly close, and with death all around them they are pretty frank and honest and loving.Somehow the story manages some humor amidst the sadness several of the Snowberger family pass away in the story its a grea [...]

    19. In the style of books and films like the 1990 s film My Girl and the book The Fossil Hunter of Sydney Mines, this children s story about a strange but creative girl trying to find her place in the world is both well written and vibrant, and easy for any kid who s ever felt like an outsider to relate to.

    20. I met Deborah Wiles at a BYU reading Seminar I had never read any of her books so I put them on hold on our Utah Online Library and this one became available first Really not a great book to read when you are dealing with grief I wasn t going to finish it, but a voice in my head said you have to so, I plugged along These people run a Funeral home swell This little 10 year old girl named Comfort is wise and said some things about death I needed to hear It was a tough book to read to at lunch beca [...]

    21. A story about family, friendship, the special place of pets and loss Comfort Snowberger is a fully three dimension character and her family provide a quirky, loving support for her growing pains This book made me weep

    22. Wow, this book was fantastic So beautiful It deals with losing family that you love, dealing with annoying family members and friendships that break and mend LOVED it.

    23. I m having to take a break from this because the relentless preciousness of the first five pages has floored me This is the kind of thing that gives southern lit a bad name Stopped dead at my best friend, Declaration Johnson

    24. I was filled with dread early on in this book, as it s riddled with things that set me off quirky southern characters, precious names Mother Joy Children Tidings and Comfort precocious children extended loving family not that these don t exist, but the level of peace and love in this particular family seemed highly implausible But again about me than this book dog soon to be in jeopardy sorry for the spoiler.I pushed on because of the good reviews and awards and now that I ve finished it, I do [...]

    25. Who would think one could use descriptors such as delightful and uplifting about a book all about funerals and death Yet, this book is exactly that It celebrates spirit and connection It honours life There is pure simplicity and complex interpersonal dynamics And in the end I cried But I would read this book again in a heartbeat just to experience interesting funeral food, the joys of a a flower garden and slobbery dog love.

    26. i read this book after reading The Help because i was still in need of that great southern voice in writing this book was sweet, southern, refreshing heart breaking it s a keeper on my bookshelf at home i actually bought it at the scholastic book fair it is a tween age book, but just a beautiful, quirky story of love loss for any age.

    27.
