    Beautiful Message

    I read this to my First Grade class every year. Some of them have lost someone they loved very much and this book's message is very comforting.
    This summer my grand daughter felt the pain of losing her grandma. I bought this book for my son to read to her when the time was right.
    I highly recommend this book because the message is very comforting.

    Vibrant colors, breathtaking illustrations

    This story is about a young girl and her grandmother, whom she lovingly refers to as Nanna, and their search for Heaven. If you know a child who has lost a loved one, or spends time with a special grandparent, step inside this book and join this unlikely pair as they take a beautiful walk through nature. ...................... Throughout this story, you will be deeply moved when you realize the many ways in which Heaven manifests itself ¿ if you will only look and listen. Heaven can be found in sunbeams, in the sweet smell of the air, or in the sounds that are all around us. As this young girl and her grandmother walk through the woods, they find it everywhere. It is in the vibrant colors of the leaves, in the trickle of a stream, and surely it is in the eyes of a little girl¿s grandmother. ........................ How far is heaven? As the young girl and her Nanna pursue Heaven on their enlightening journey, they come to recognize - and fully understand - that it is all around them and to know the feeling of being, ¿¿the richest person on earth.¿ ........................... *****I highly recommend this book for any child who has a close relationship with an older person, or who needs comfort during a time of bereavement. Each page is filled with vibrant color and the illustrations are simply breathtaking.*****
