For children, death seems unreal and at a distance - until it comes close: a grandparent, a father, a mother, a sibling, or a pet dies. Suddenly death becomes real and immediate, and children have questions about what has happened: What does die mean? Where is Daddy now? In Heaven? Can I go see him? And what is heaven? A Place Prepared will help you talk with children about death and heaven, and help yo uto prepare them for the inevitable losses that they will experience throughout their lives.
