Finn knows his brother is gone. But he also knows that Hamish sent the beautiful white feather on his doorstep.
Finn runs to shows his mother the feather from Hamish, but she only gives him a big hug. In school, Finn's teacher responds similarly. Why isn't anyone as excited as he is? Finn sits quietly, cradling the beautiful, amazing feather. "Why did Hamish give it to you?" asks his friend, Lucas. "Maybe he wanted to say hi?" wonders Finn. "Maybe," Lucas says, "Hamish wanted you to have fun with it." Finn's Feather is a story about resilience and memory-about a child, his brother, and a friend who meets him where he is.
'...the most beautiful story navigating the journey children take when they lose a loved family member. If you have a child who has lost someone - I cannot recommend this book more highly...a beautiful uplifting story about how children find their own way to explain death and the importance of having people in their lives who can meet them where they are.' - Rebecca Sparrow, author of The Girl Most Likely and Find Your Tribe
`Finn's Feather is a story about resilience and memory about a child, his brother, and a friend who meets him where he is. Finn's Feather will be treasured by many and, I hope, will find a place in the hands of those who need it the most.' - Megan Daley, Children's Books Daily
'Finn's Feather is a beautiful and sad yet empowering picture book...a story to share with anyone who has or has not lost someone in their life. It is a celebration of life and a celebration of memories. It reminds us that just because someone isn't here on Earth with us anymore, it doesn't mean your relationship with them is over. If you have a child who is dealing with grief I highly recommend buying or borrowing this book.' - Educate Empower
