So sadly a good friend of mine from college passed away last Saturday. It was actually our 10 year grad anniversary so very bittersweet. :(
My daughter oversaw me crying as I was going through some pictures and she asked what was wrong. We've had a few people in our lives (not really close, but close enough to bring tears) pass away in the last month so inevitably she started to ask (she's 5). Questions like....
"Where is heaven?"
"Why can't I see heaven?"
"If heaven is in the sky, why don't we see it when we are in airplanes?"
"What do you do in heaven?"
"Do you get to eat in heaven?"
"Will I go to heaven?"
"Will I die soon?"
...and so on. All kind of tough questions to answer as of course, no one really knows what heaven is like other than what we imagine it will be like (and she wants the details). I"m not asking to start a debate on religion here (please) but would like to know if anyone has any good recommendations for books for about the 5 year old age group.
