    Default Recommend a book to help talk to a child about death /heaven

    Can anyone please recommend a book? My almost 5 year old is starting to ask questions and sometimes he gets upset . No one in the family has recently passed (he was only 2 weeks old when my dad passed away), so we don't need it to deal with grief.
    Thanks

    Following this post! My almost 5 year old nephew is doing the same to my sister and he is getting quite distressed too. No recent losses in our family either.

    Are you Christian? Like will you go the heaven way ? There is a book called someday heaven, from koorong book store. It helped my son from about 6 -7 yrs old. We are not church people either but it puts it nicely.

    Is there lots of words / text in the book?
