Zayde Comes to Live by Sheri Sinykin - PUBLIC
This book covers a very sensitive subject in a loving and ultimately uplifting way. While the author shows death and dying from a distinctly Jewish perspective, she also briefly addresses Christian and Muslin beliefs. Would be a good jumping-off point for discussions about what happens when people die. May also provide comfort to children who have recently lost a grandparent or other loved-one. Because of the strong religious overtones, this book would work best in very diverse collections or in a public library. EL - PUBLIC ONLY. Reviewed by: Caryn.
