This hardcover picture book for ages 5-10 beautifully illustrates the steps a family takes when a Slavic Orthodox Christian loved one dies. We follow the progression from funeral home visitation and Pomen, witness the church ceremony, and conclude with the cemetery graveside service. Along the way, the most commonly asked questions children have about death and funerals are answered. Fears are alleviated by gently showing what to expect and explaining what the child will see. Most importantly, the comfort of the Orthodox Faith is affirmed. Extensive glossary with in-depth discussion of Slavic Orthodox memorial services and funerary terms. With foreword by V. Rev. Dr. Milos Vesin. Of interest not only for members of the Orthodox Faith, but also mortuary students and elementary teachers who wish to explore multicultural customs in a unit study pertaining to religions of the world or a compare/contrast of ancient and contemporary funerary ritual.
