"I treasure the book as a very fine example of a child's death narrative that rings true. Among other things, I appreciate the fact that the world of the living is an appealing, sun-filled place to be even while one's heart and mind feels sadness and loss."--Wendy Lukehart, Youth Collections Coordinator, DC Public Library
"Inspired by Noble's own experience of loss, and enhanced by Abbott's naive, softly colored double-page-spread illustrations, the gentle story deals with death gracefully by celebrating those who have gone before. It will provide a welcome opportunity for parents to discuss a serious issue with their young children."--Michael Cart, Booklist
"The episode is less about grieving the loss of a loved one than finding positive ways to remember and to regard the deceased."--Kirkus Reviews
"A stunning story of a child's death told through the eyes of the brother. A feather arrives, a gift that nurtures loss, and leads to a day filled with laughter, love and the celebration of life, memory and exploring death in a healing and nurturing way. This book is a gift to those who have known loss and those that seek to understand and support."--Jesica Sweedler DeHart, Wandering Bookseller
"Combined, the art and story create a useful, moving resource for bereaved children and their families."--Publishers Weekly
"If you have a child who has lost someone--I cannot recommend this book more highly."--Rebecca Sparrow, Rebecca Sparrow dot com
★ "...more a celebration of love than sadness over a death."--kyurenka, Youth Services Book Review
"A grieving mother pays tribute to her lost son through an inspiring debut children's story."--Who Magazine
"An imaginative and original story by Rachel Noble that is charmingly illustrated by Zoey Abbott, 'Finn's Feather' is a very highly recommended addition to family, daycare center, preschool, elementary school, and community library picture book collections for children ages 4 to 8."--The Midwest Book Review
"In this delicately insightful story about love, loss and forever, Rachel Noble draws on personal experience to offer a gentle pathway forward for anyone who has lost a beloved child or parent, and the process of grieving; a pathway personal to everyone. ... Easy to read words combined with graceful artwork from Zoey Abbott completes a work which is both significant and poignant and perfect for children struggling to understand the process of death and grieving."--Blue Wolf Reviews
