Seller's Description:

"Straightforward, gentle, useful, and engaging. " - Kirkus Reviews When Grandpa suggests that a caterpillar might die if Christopher puts it in a jar. _ã–Are you going to die, Grandpa?_㝠_ã–Someday, sweetheart. But I hope not too soon._㝠Their simple exchange covers a lot of philosophical ground. Grandpa allows that _ã–no one really knows_㝠what happens after death, but he tells Christopher that some people think of heaven (_ã–a place without sadness or war_ã), others of rebirth (_ã–each time, you get wiser_ã), and others of _ã–nothing_㝠(_ã–the same as before you were born_ã). The pair discusses the whys of death (_ã–dying is part of life_ã), birth (_ã–to learn all sorts of things_ã), and feelings of fear or comfort about dying. An important picture book that gives children free rein to express their questions, fears, thoughts, and ideas about death. For children ages 5 and up. Including an epilogue by the grief therapist Rebecca Dabekaussen, with tips on how to discuss this difficult but inevitable subject with children.
