New York Public Library Best Books for Kids



Norma and her parents are going to her great-uncle Frank's funeral, and Norma is more excited than sad. She is looking forward to playing with her favorite cousin, Ray, but when she arrives at the church, she is confronted with rituals and ideas that have never occurred to her before. While not all questions can be answered, when the day is over Norma is certain of one thing -- Uncle Frank would have enjoyed his funeral.


This sensitive and life-affirming story will lead young readers to ask their own questions about life, death and how we remember those who have gone before us.
