    2. This copy kindly provided by NetGalley on behalf of the publisher A lovely story about a little girl learning to deal with her mum s suicide due to mental illness My son is under the targeted age group, but he understood enough that Luna was sad because her mum was sick and died I would highly recommend this to families who find themselves in a similar situation to Luna, her dad and brother Also includes further information for parents and carers at the end of the book


    3. I was browsing Netgalley and my son was like, How about that book He pointed to this one, and I just requested it for him without even reading what it was about.Then I saw it was about suicide, and decided not to read it to him He s younger than the targeted age, and also he hasn t lost anybody that way, so I feel the message would have gone over his head.However, I read it, and I think it would be a good book for a child who s lost someone to suicide It shows how a child might be feeling and wh [...]

    5. It s not easy to find a book that writes so specifically to the situation of the loss of a parent by suicide I like the way the book lets Luna be angry but also sad that her mother chose to leave her It acknowledges that she can be mad about the situation even though she loves her mom I also liked that it made sure to point out that her mother s suicide was never Luna s fault, her mother was ill and the sometimes even the doctor s can t help I found that the last section, the parents guide, also [...]

    11. Luna s Red Hat is one of the only picture books that I have read that tackles a tough subject with such grace and dignity that I feel it should also be a book placed in an adult section of a library Not only does Smid address the means of how a child feels about suicide and the loss that comes with it, but she also addresses how a parent should speak with a child about difficult life situations.The illustrations are beautiful I enjoy how almost minimalistic and almost childlike the illustrations [...]

    14. This is, by far, one of the best children s books I ve read this year hell, in my life Not only are the pictures inside gorgeous, but the story is absolutely beautiful There is a section in the back that helps with the conversations that sometimes adults don t know how to have in this situation This book made me cry not just because I felt for the little girl, but because I know what it s like to have a parent that dies when you re young I think this book is not just beneficial for a loss throug [...]


    15. I recieved this as an E ARC from Netgalley in return of an honest review The copy I received wasn t in the best shape but it was still readable I liked it I did It was sweet and great I believe it could offer some helf not only to children who deal with the loss of a parent, who comitted suicide, but also to the parent left behind It can often be hard for a parent to know exactly what and how much to tell their children, when their co parent decides to take their life I cannot even imagine how h [...]

    20. Read this during a slump It was great I loved the illustrations This was definitely still sad, though, but I think it s hugely important and could be super beneficial to children dealing with loss in this way I don t really have a lot to say about it it handled suicide extremely well, I think, and did so in a concise way that wasn t too involved or too far removed from the actual issues at hand Awesome I received this book in exchange for an honest review.


    21. In this book a father delicately answers his daughter s questions about her mother s suicide This is a sensitive and well written book that would be useful for children in similar situations The book is beautifully illustrated with soft tones and layered with emotion This would be a great book for school counselors.


    22. Today is not a day for being happy or having fun one year ago this day Luna s mother committed suicide, leaving Luna forever Luna s father helps her come to terms with her mother s loss and deal with her grief and anger This realistic and touching story is very well illustrated with excellent characters.


    23. Luna s Red Hat is a warm hearted and soothing picture book about dealing with the aftermath of a loved one s suicide from a child s point of view A very helpful guide for parents by bereavement specialist, Dr Riet Fiddleaers Jaspers, is in the end notes For ages 4 12.


    24. An age appropriate story about helping a child through her mom s suicide Great illustrations, sad story In a perfect world without mental illness , this book would ve never needed to be written.


    25. About a little girl going through her own emotions about the death of her mum who took her own life And how her father makes her understand what has happened that it is not her fault or her mums Very touching story great illustrations about a very real subject.


    26. I hope no one ever has to read this book, but if they do, it s a lovely way to help a child recover from a parent s suicide Very affecting, without being maudlin.
