Grandpa's Tent (Paperback)
Hard to find: allow 24 hours for information
Written by two Episcopal priests--and mothers--Grandpa's Tent is a companion for children and families as they experience death, perhaps for the first time. The book explains what the Bible says about death--and life after death--and walks gently and honestly through the process of saying goodbye, attending the funeral, and grieving a loved one. The book also includes helpful talking points for adults to discuss death with children.
