In this touching narrative, young children ask, "Where do people go when they die?" Each child asks an adult that they trust--a father, a mother, a grandfather, an aunt, a teacher--and, although the reassuring answers they receive are all different, each leads back to the same simple truth: when people die, "They go to God. Who is everywhere." With an afterward and helpful suggestions about how to explain death to children, readers will find insight into one of the emotional issues we all struggle with.

The author presents various views of what happens to people when they die, in such a way that it is not necessary for the reader to choose one of the responses over the others. It is pleasant and simple, and contains nice illustrations which include some diversity. - Marla S. ( )
