Synopsis

Thinking of Heaven Prayers for the Sad Goodbyes by Sophie Piper

This collection of prayers is intended as a gift for the bereaved child and to provide the kind of comfort and hope that grown ups find hard to put into words. Prayers old and new combine with words from the Christian faith to offer words of consolation, comfort, hope and reassurance. The collection can be dipped into or, if read in its entirety, it will take the child on a journey of accepting the change and loss in nature (seasons, plants, creatures) through to a deeper acceptance of death and the belief in the enduring nature of love. The collection is simply but appropriately illustrated with line drawings throughout.
