Reviews - What do customers think about For Heaven's Sake?

Heaven is in the simplest things...  Mar 3, 2008
Where is heaven?? "In Heaven's Name" is a term we use often in many different circumstances. So, it is with this little boy...why does everyone always refer to "In Heaven's Name..." and just where is this place?? He is especially curious because his beloved Grandpa has recently passed away...where is Grandpa? So, he and his Grandma look for heaven together...and what they find is that Heaven is in the little parts of everyday life...and in your hearts most of all. This is an excellent book because Rabbi Sasso writes in such simple eloquent terms that you can't help but be touched, even if you are an adult!!! If you or your children are looking for where heaven is, this is a great way to start. Enjoy!
For Heaven Sake  Jun 20, 2001
The first thing that I loved about this book was it's title. Who has not heard or used the phrase: "for heaven sake". Several weeks ago, my father passed away and I have been searching for the perfect book to read to my child about where her grandfather went. For Heaven Sake, follows a young boy on his journey to learn about heaven (a place where everyone tells him, his grandfather is). This book is written in a gentle and caring way, that helps both the child and adult cope with the very challenging and difficult subject of death. It answers the most common questions that children ask. The illustrations and content of the story kept my child's attention. I enjoy reading it to her and feel my own sense of comfort with knowing that my father is in heaven. It has become one of her favorite books at bedtime. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has children that have suffered a loss of a loved one or who one day might. It is an excellent book to have around.
