I Don't Have an Uncle Phil Anymore
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
How does a child cope with loss and grief? In this moving story for children of all ages, a young boy gets the news that his adored Uncle Phil has died unexpectedly. Told through the eyes of a child, the story describes many traditions and social rituals associated with death, and addresses a wide range of feelings and questions. As his mother attempts to explain death to the boy, he finds his own uplifting way to grieve for Uncle Phil.
Marjorie White Pellegrino really did know the boy who played ball with his uncle one last time. A writer of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, she finds much of her inspiration in children, and repays their gift in writing workshops where she offers them a chance to discover their voice and wisdom. Marge grew up in Tuckahoe, New York, and has made her home in Tucson, Arizona, for the last 20 ears with her husband, son, cat, and the desert residents who visit their yard on a daily basis.
