Each little bird that sings/Deborah Wiles, p. Summary: Comfort Snowberger is well acquainted with death since her family runs the funeral parlor in their small southern town, but even so the ten-year-old is unprepared for the series of heart-wrenching events that begins on the first day of Easter vacation with the sudden death of her beloved great-uncle Edisto.

Though slightly childish, Each Little Bird That Sings remains, to this day, my favourite book. Deborah Wiles created characters I considered some of my best friends. I cried when they cried, laughed when they laughed, saw what they saw. Comfort became my sister, Peach my cousin

Though slightly childish, Each Little Bird That Sings remains, to this day, my favourite book. Comfort became my sister, Peach my cousin. I was mad at Declaration, and I missed Great-great-aunt Florentine. Each Little Bird That Sings is intense, thought-provoking, and moving.

Each Little Bird That Sings. Deborah Wiles has created a unique, funny, and utterly real cast of characters in this heartfelt, and quintessentially Southern coming-of-age novel. Ten-year-old Comfort Snowberger has attended 247 funerals. But that's not surprising, considering that her family runs the town funeral home. Comfort will charm young readers with her wit, her warmth, and her struggles as she learns about life, loss, and ultimately, triumph.

Each Little Bird That Si. .has been added to your Cart. I love how all of Deborah Wiles' books are connected. They are all set in the same rural area in Mississippi and some of the characters appear in this book as well as its predecessor. Comfort is adorable and incredibly realistic. I love she doesn't see her life as anything other than normal.

Just like Love Ruby Lavender, this book is a phenomenal children's story that deals with children and death. I love how all of Deborah Wiles' books are connected. They are all set in the same rural area in Mississippi and some of the characters appear in this book as well as its predecessor. Comfort is adorable and incredibly realistic. I love she doesn't see her life as anything other than normal. (I mean, how many other children live above a funeral home and has been to over 200 funerals?) Her siblings, specifically her older brother, Tidings, are fantastic and their relationship is incredibly realistic.

The names are a bit odd. I wouldn't have minded it so much if it had just been Comfort's family. But even her best friend was named Declaration and her cousin was Peach. But that's something that you get used to rather quickly.

My only tip for Ms. Wiles is to perhaps write a book with multiple narrators. With this book specifically, I would have liked to hear Declaration's side of the story. The way it's written now, I find myself not liking her character. I believe I understand her reasonings, but there was really no resolve between her and Comfort. It's as if the story ended right when Comfort decided to give her a second chance. I wish there was more resolution to their falling out.

Even with all of that, I would highly recommend this book to both kids and adults alike. I cannot wait for Ms. Wiles' next book!

I read this for a parent/child book club that I am doing with my fourth grade son. I was a little unsure about the book for him based on the subject matter, but after having read this book, I'd certainly recommend it for his age and up. Even as an adult, I found myself compelled by Deborah Wiles story telling and its ability to transport me back to some tough times that I had in my childhood.

Comfort Snowberger, the main character, lives in a funeral home, her family's business and is around death quite a lot. However, things do start to unravel for her when first her Uncle Edisto and then her great, great Aunt Florentine die within the space of a year. And if that wasn't enough, her best friend Declaration is acting weird to her and hanging out with a bunch of other girls. And this isn't the end of the problems for Comfort as she faces more problems with her most dependable companion Dismay, her dog.

Of course, the outlines of the plot are common, but once again what really makes this book so good is Wiles' ability to do three things exceptionally well: (1) she creates a wonderful sense of person and place. We really feel like we know small-town Snapfinger, Mississippi and the characters -- while they may not be Peach, Declaration or Uncle Edisto, they do reflect individuals from our youth, (2) Wiles' enables both youth and adults to be empathetic to Comfort becasue we all can relate to what she is going through from our own personal experiences, (3) in spite of the problems Comfort is going through, there is a great sense of irony through out this book. It may be more noticeable for an adult, but that certainly helps making it an enjoyable read for someone like me.

Overall, I'd highly recommend this book to young adults and even adults to share reading with them.

Although this is a book written for children, I have read and reread it numerous times and given it as a gift often (I hope it never goes out of print). Many will mention it being a book about death, but I think it is a book that speaks volumes about embracing life, and figuring out the mystery of loving with all your heart and letting go when that is the right thing to do. Seldom has a book touched my heart so deeply.

Great book. It has some material regarding death so you might want to preview. But I believe it is appropriate for 5th grade and up.

This is a great book for kids (especially girls) from 11yrs and older. It features a young girl who lives with her family in a funeral home in the Southern US. Need there be more said?
Nightscar
Although full of characters with ridiculous names, this book was a sweet glimpse of childhood with all its messy glory.
Anyshoun
A family who deals with death while working/owning a mortuary. Sad and funny all in one book. Read to grandchildren when grandfather was dying.
One of the best books ever. It captures life (and death) perfectly. Comfort is enclosed in a circle of love--if only that were true for everyone.
