Details

Explaining illness and death to children is one of the most difficult tasks adults undertake. This heartwarming story by AiG writer Stacia McKeever explains sickness and death in a wonderfully sensitive way. Readers are introduced to Emily, whose friend, Keiko, has leukemia. Through a conversation with her parents, Emily comes to understand why the world is the way it is. From a discussion of the first two people, Adam and Eve, through an explanation of death, sin and spiritual rebirth, Emily is comforted in the knowledge that God cares very much for her friend.

A final section, “Things to Do and Talk about Together,” gives parents an opportunity to think through their responses to children who have questions about difficult realities.
