A must for parents and counselors

Where's Grandpa? touches the heart of anyone who has ever suffered the loss of a loved one or tried to explain loss to a child. The family remembers the wonderful times they have had with Grandpa but the child still wonders, "But where, exactly is he now?" The illustrations are wonderful and compliment the story. This book shows a sensitive way of dealing with bereavement.

Where is Grandpa?

This story is about a kid,his family and his Grandpa. His Grandpa dies and he wonders where he went. I recomend this book to anyone who doesn't mind sad endings.

A Touching Story

This is the touching story of a boy who has lost his grandfather. After the family finds out about the death of grandpa, they spend the remainder of the story sharing special memories of him. The boy asks, "Where is Grandpa?" and the father goes onto explain about heaven. I truly enjoyed this book. This would be a wonderful story for children and parents to share together. I am sure the special memories in the story would cause parents and children to remember special memories shared with their grandparents. The illusatrations are fantastic and they help to create the overall mood of the story.

A touching story about death

This is a largely autobiographical story that is meant to help young people cope with the death of a loved one. (I don't think this point is made in the book, but it was made in a letter I had from the author.) The illustrations have a surreal quality, and remind me a little of Maxfield Parrish's work. When a boy's beloved grandfather dies, he reminisces about the things they did together, the places they went, about what Grandpa meant to him and the family. He struggles with his feelings and finally says, "Where is Grandpa now?" The answer is not very original, but is as good as anyone has ever offered, and it's an answer that may help other young (and maybe not so young) people deal with the death of someone they love. But this is a book that needs to be read to or with a boy or girl, and not merely handed to them to read on their own. Whether it will be of any value to youngsters who have not yet seen Death's work is questionable, but I think it would help those who have.
