This story beautifully illustrates what happens to our bodies as we die and the feelings we may have after someone we love dies without any religious bias. It helped my child understand what she would see at a funeral and burial and gave her words to express her emotions after her grandfather died. My only warning is that the little girl gets a new dog at the end of the book and my daughter (3 years old) was very upset initially that the dog had been "replaced."
