Jesus Still Loves Joe: About a child Whose Sister Has Died
Held in Hope series
by Victoria Beech and the Paediatric Chaplaincy Network, illustrated by Rhiannon Mollart
Each story of the series is also available as a free online film with the story read by Bear Grylls.
The price of book includes postage if bought from the publisher. This is a very special series fulfilling the particular needs of very special children.
In this story Joe is grieving for his sister Lucy. Sometimes he enjoys remembering the happy times they had together, sometimes he is just sad, and sometimes he is SO angry that she is not still here with him, but at all times he is comforted by the promise that however he feels, Jesus Still Loves Joe.
The illustrations are simple and fit with the words beautifully. Either read from the book, or listened to and watched as the film, this story is sure to help and the simplicity may even speak to the adult reading it to, or watching it with, the child.
