Where Did Grandad Go?

by Catherine House and Honor Ayres


Price: £5.99
Publisher:Barnabas imprint of BRF
Published:Spring 2006
This is an excellent help to families needing to explain to little ones about the death of a grandfather. Beautifully illustrated and sympathetically told in story fashion. Megan and her Granny pick some flowers and then walk to the graveyard talking about the things they see around them. Megan remembers where Grandadís grave is and arranges the flowers in the vase. She asks Granny if God lives with Grandad in the graveyard and Granny explains that God is everywhere, but Grandad has gone to live in Godís house. Granny goes on to explain that one day she will die too, and that although Megan will miss her, she will have many happy memories of both her grandparents.
