Here is a booklet helping children who are grieving the death of a friend, family member or someone they know. It compassionately seeks to address some of their questions, while comforting them with the truth of the Bible. It assumes nothing as to the spiritual position of the person who has died, but does clearly explain how they can have hope even in the face of death, by trusting in the One who has conquered death once and for all.
This booklet is designed for 6–11 year olds.
