A lovely story, and a very useful analogy.,
This review is from: Water Bugs and Dragonfiles: Explaining Death to Young Children (Looking Up) (Paperback)
I'm reading this book to my 4-year old who's asking where Granddad has gone. It's a particularly useful analogy because of the 2 different environments lived in by the water bugs and the dragonfly, which explains why we can't go to see if Granddad is OK and neither can he come back to see us! It is a bit religious, but if you're OK with that, it's a great story.
