Great granddad Nicholas is really special: his adventures fascinate his grandson Pietro, who adores him as if he were a super hero. Unfortunately however, great-granddad is not well and Pietro finds himself faced with a pain that gnaws at his heart and removes all hope.
Thanks to the story about a drop of water, the last gift that great-granddad gives Pietro before leaving him, the little hero of this book learns to accept the inevitable and to continue loving his great-granddad, who is no longer by his side but in his heart.
A sensitive, touching story for tackling the subject of death with children and for getting through and overcoming the grieving process with the therapeutic power of a fable.
The book comes with a CD with the story and some educational tips for the parents.
The reading of the story is recommended for children aged 5 to 10.
