Adónde van las personas cuando mueren?

Adónde van las personas cuando mueren?

by Mindy Avra Portnoy, Shelly O. Haas
     
 

In this touching narrative, young children ask, "Where do people go when they die?" Each child asks an adult that they trust—a father, a mother, a grandfather, an aunt, a teacher—and, although the reassuring answers they receive are all different, each leads back to the same simple truth: when people die, "They go to God. Who is everywhere."

PreS-Gr 2

Each of the children who ask the question posed by the title of this book receives a different response: "The dead are in the ground and return to the earth; they go to heaven where they are at peace; they are always in our memories and our hearts; they are part of God who is in all things." Drawing upon her experiences as an ordained rabbi, Portnay crafts a series of tales that treat a challenging topic with great sensitivity. Haas (The Magic of Kol Nidre, Kar Ben Publishers, 1998) uses full-spread watercolor illustrations of pastels, blues, oranges and earth tones to visually tell the stories and augment the text. Of particular interest to parents and guardians will be a section that gives insightful suggestions on how to discuss the topic with children. The Spanish translation is strong, which further aids in making this a good addition to collections serving Spanish-speaking populations. Recommended for school, public libraries and bookstores.-Cristi Jenkins, Access & Programs, Fort Vancouver Regional Library, WA
