What Millieโ€™s Book is Not...

*** a child battling a terminal illness?

***an older generation getting close to the end of their lifetime?

***a parent preparing to tell their child about death?

***a neighbor, a friend, even a news story?

Often when we have a loved one die, we are tempted to try and make death easier for the children in our family. We say things that can be confusing to little ones.

โ€œDaddy had to go away.โ€

โ€œGrandma is now gone to a better place.โ€

โ€œThe baby is now an angel with God.โ€

While these statements give us adults something to say, for children they leave questions and even a fear of death.

Young children often see death as temporary and even reversable thing due to the exposure they see on the many tv programs, especially cartoons.

When I wrote โ€œ๐Œ๐ข๐ฅ๐ฅ๐ข๐ž ๐…๐ข๐ง๐๐ฌ ๐‡๐ž๐ซ ๐Œ๐ข๐ซ๐š๐œ๐ฅ๐žโ€ I wanted it to be a book that would allow conversations between parents and children about what comes next. I wanted a gentle introduction about death and heaven, allowing parents to follow up with their faith and beliefs.

What Millieโ€™s book is not:

๐ˆ๐ญ ๐ข๐ฌ ๐ง๐จ๐ญ ๐š ๐›๐จ๐จ๐ค ๐š๐›๐จ๐ฎ๐ญ ๐œ๐ก๐ข๐ฅ๐๐ก๐จ๐จ๐ ๐œ๐š๐ง๐œ๐ž๐ซ. Though the pictures depict a bald child, nowhere is cancer mentioned.

It is not a scary book. It shows each scene peacefully, even those that have medical stuff in the picture. Only one page shows tears.

It is not only a book that is useful to child loss. This book can be read to any child, anywhere, without them even having death currently affecting their lives.

Letโ€™s face it, children will be faced with death and grief in their lifetime. It is inevitable and we, as care givers, must decide how we will teach them healthy ways to cope with loss.

It was on my heart today to share this because ๐—œ ๐˜„๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—ต๐—ผ๐˜„ ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜† ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ด๐—ต๐˜ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐˜†๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ถ๐—น๐—ฑ๐—ต๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐˜„๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—น๐—ฑ ๐˜„๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐˜๐—ต๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ธ? How many of you have children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or neighbors in your life that this book can be read to?

Keep sharing!
