The Bible book of Ecclesiastes Chapter 7, verses 2-4 says, “It is better to go to a funeral than to a party. We all must die, and everyone living should think about this. Sorrow is better than laughter, and sadness has a good influence on you. A wise person thinks about death,
but a fool thinks only about having a good time.”
There were two deaths this week in my world. Two families that mean a great deal to me will no longer be able to talk with and enjoy being with their loved one. One lost a brother & Uncle. One lost a Dad & Grandpa . This book is probably for an 8 year old or older. It is a longer story, but engaging. It may work for a read aloud story with the right younger child that has a long attention span. The book ends with questions to think about that are great to help deal with a loss of someone close no matter how young or old you are. It doesn’t address faith in God. This book deals with what happens on earth; physical & emotional only. That said, it is dealt with very well.
