Farewell, Grandpa Elephant: A Picture Book Story About Death

Author(s): Isabel Abedi

Children Picture

Grandpa Elephant knows that it is his time to go to the elephant graveyard, and so he begins his farewells to his grandchildren. The young elephants are confused, but they soon realize that although there is sadness, there are also countless possibilities within the mystery of death. Maybe Grandpa Elephant will go to heaven and walk on clouds, or maybe he will be reincarnated. Even he does not know. Though the little elephants will never see Grandpa Elephant again, they learn that he will live on in their thoughts and dreams. Helping children deal with the loss of a loved one can be difficult, but this book can make it easier to explain what is happening in terms that they will understand. Through the elephants' eyes, children learn that even though they will never see a beloved face again, there is the possibility of life after death, and the certainty of preservation through their memory.
