Reviews - What do customers think about The Next Place?
A wonderful book for kids and adults Jun 4, 2008
I am the Human Resources Manager and sadly have seen too many employees go through heart breaking loss of loved ones. I found this book when looking for something more meaningful than a card to give to a close co worker who tragicaly lost her husband. Since then, I have given this book to several employees, friends and families who are struggling to find comfort in the most darkest of times. I also keep a copy for myself for when I need to remember those close to me that have gone to "the next place."
Not only for children - no matter what age we are - death is still a mystery and we need comfort in imagining a wonderful place where that persons spirit is surrounded with our love and friendship.
Amazing May 23, 2008
My children are 7 and 5 years old, and over the course of the past 4 years our family has lost 5 very important life influences. I was looking for a book that would help my children better understand more about what happens to the spirit when it leaves our current life form/body. This book has been a great resource to help our entire family think about the possibilities past this life. I love the message it sends to children (and adults) about the next place- and how wonderful and freeing it can be.
The Next Place May 23, 2008
I purchased this book to read to my mother when she was in a coma, the night before she traveled to the next place. I used to talk to her about life after death, and lovinly reminded her before I left her room to be sure to come back and let me know that I was right and she wasn't .... she leaves me dimes. I then read it to my family later that evening. I have given it to several of my friends - a psychologist, a nurse, a mom, and they all found it very loving and helpful. I don't think its "new agey" whatever that is supposed to mean. I certainly believe in God and that "new age" terminology is so biased.
Gentle comfort Apr 28, 2008
Warren Hansen has written and illustrated a work of gentle comfort for anyone who has lost a loved one. I have bought numerous copies for friends since someone gave me a copy when I experienced the traumatic death of a close family member. The text is filled with lyrical descriptions of the next place we'll all go - where existence is peaceful and painless. I never tire of reading it. It's equally comforting for children and adults.
Simply spectacular Apr 25, 2008
I bought this book for an 8 year old we are adopting after the death of her mother to help explain, 'where did mommy go?' The writing and illustrations are beautiful beyond description - brilliantly simple but complete and comforting. There are no religious references and I believe it would fit into anyone's definition of the afterlife regardless of religious (or non-religious) background. I think this would be a lovely book for ages far beyond the '4-8' recommendation.
