Mama's Going to Heaven Soon

Elissa Hudson

This compassionate story assists children and caregivers in talking about the anticipated death of a parent. Readers will begin to process their own feelings as they listen to the children in the story talk about the confusion they feel because their mom is sick, the sadness they feel when they learn that their mom will die, and their questions about what will happen when she dies. The bright childlike artwork and the simple straightforward language combine to offer an assuring, hopeful message. For caregivers, the final pages of the book offer suggestions to further assist them in talking to children about death.
