I received this book from the organ doner foundation after my son committed suicide. "The Next Place" brought so much comfort to me, I purchased 2 books online to give to friends during thier time of grief. It was also helpful to read to my grandchildren, when I told them their loved one passed on.
I bought this for my nephews who just lost their Dad but will not give it to them. I felt it was a book about someone who knows they will pass on. Like cancer victims or the very eldery, etc.... It was well written and has beautiful images but not the right book for what I was looking for.
This book means alot to our family. I read this to my grandma just before she died. I read this at the funeral and I pass this along to all that have lost a loved one. It is a childrens book but it explains things well. Would highly recommend this very special book to everyone.
This book is a journey for both young and old to understand, cope, and experience death in an enlightening way. When I lost my brother to cancer, I was given this book. It was a great inspiration for me to come to terms with, and helped in my grieving process. I highly recommend this book.
