Our society is uneasy with the reality of death-hiding death behind euphemisms and rituals that most pre-school and elementary-age children do not understand. Children are much more frightened of the mysterious and the unexplained than they are if they understand the natural process of death and society's common rituals, such as a funeral, so that they will be able to manage their feelings and thoughts. Using a Christian framework, this book can help dispel the fears that a child encounters when faced with the death of someone they love. Children are encouraged to say "good-bye" in a way that is both meaningful and understandable to them, enabling them to cope with grief and loss.
