This book gives a very nice and easy to understand definition of heaven.

Kate's great-grandmother passes away. Kate starts asking her mom about what happens to her after she dies. Her mother tells her that she went to heaven and that she will be happy up there and never sick. Kate's mother tells her that she will be with God. Kate keeps asking questions and her mom reassures her that we will never forget her and that she will always live within us.

Very good book. It can help explain to children what happens to people when they die.

A teacher can use this book to explain to children that death is not the end, but that our souls go to a better place. Also that a person we love will always live within us.
