I like it because it talks about heaven in a way kids can understand. I like the pictures. It teaches to not be just sad when someone dies because they are going to heaven. It’s okay to be happy. I liked the illustrations. I could relate to the little girl because I lost my Grampa.
This summer my children lost their Grandfather. We lost a mentor and friend. It’s hard to deal with the emotions. The ups and downs.
Where Did Mommy Go?is a good reminder to slow down and get my children’s perspective on what has happened and what they are struggling with.
My one caution would be to be very sure your children understand God requires us to accept his gift of salvation. People do not simply go to heaven when they die, no matter what. For young ones this can be as simple as ABC. Admit we are sinners in need of a Savior. Believe Jesus did all that was required for us to be right with God. Confess Jesus as Lord.
Tomorrow I’ll share an interview with Sherry.
