A Must Read! Sep 27, 2005
As a result of Kathe Copeland's daughter-in-law's terminal breast cancer, the compassionate children's story, Mama's Going to Heaven Soon, was born. It is a story that will help parents and other caregivers explain what is happening to their loved one. It also allows children to explore their feelings of confusion, fear and sadness and then be able to verbalize their concerns. The message is hope.
The bold, bright and beautiful child-like artwork will contribute to drawing the children into the story. For parents there is a section that offers suggestions to assist them as they begin the task of talking about death.
Armchair Interviews says: Many families will benefit from this compassionate story. We highly recommend it. It also might be a welcomed gift for someone you know who is experiencing an impending death.
My wife Jul 27, 2005
This book was written about my wife Tammy whose picture appears on the last page. This book is a wonderful help for any parent facing the loss of thier spouse when they have young children. I wish we had a similar book to this when we needed it. My children have both read this book and we will all cherish it forever.
