Someone I Love Died Reviews
Wonderful & Comforting! After my grandchildren's (ages 8 & 6), other Pappa's funeral; I took them back to their home, after settling in I gave them each their own copy of this book along with new colored pencils. We read the book together and they couldn't wait to start on their "Pappa Book". Both children worked on their book for 2 hours straight! They wrote, colored, & drew their thoughts, prayers & feelings in their book. They shed tears, poured their hearts out & even told funny Pappa stories & laughed. After their bedtime routine we always say prayers & have a story (or 2). We read their books, this time with their additions. They both took their book to bed to sleep with. I babysit often & this book is requested often, even 6 mos. later.They were very close to their Pappa & this really helped them. I wish their was a version for teens & adults!
My four year old son died 6 weeks ago. I have received many books for our two 7 year olds on what it's like for children who die. Most of them talk about your child becoming an angel (which has no Biblical basis), or has a lot of speculation about what the child is doing in heaven, all of which just makes for a lot of fluff that doesn't have much truth behind it.
I purchased this book after my father died to read to my children. They kept asking me questions a bout death and dying that I couldn't understand or answer without tearing. However after purchasing this book they stopped asking questions and just asked to read the book. I am a hospice nurse and I'm glad I found this book and will recommend it to many families that I meet
Exactly what I was hoping for to help my 7 year old with the passing of her grandmother. Includes biblical references and gives interactive opportunities with spaces for the children to write their feelings, write the name of the loved one lost, etc. Really helps with creating a dialogue on this very sensitive subject.
This book is a well-round book that will take your child throught the tough times by understanding why they are sad into teaching them how to pray and talk to God about the loveone they missed so much. In time of grieving it is important to teach young childern about death and why it occurs. This book is a great communication opening between parent and child; therefore avoiding thoughts of disliking or possiblityof hating a loving God.
My daughter loves this book. It's helped her a lot to understand the passing of my father, and what exactly happened to her Papa and where he is now. It's been a wonderful conversation starter on days where she's feeling sad, and they illustrations help her to smile again.
I bought this book for my six year old daughter after her older sister passed away. This is a wonderful book. It has places to write who passed away and how they feel about it. They also included biblical truths simple enough for children to understand. I would recommend this book for any child who has lost a loved one!
Very helpful book for my kids when my father passed away and we had to explain where Grandpa went. Helped prepare them for the funeral, services, etc. Good illustration work to make the topic more approachable.
