Where Do Peolpe Go When They Die, by Mindy Avra Portnoy

click to download image


Children ask different adults and themselves about death and receive a wide variety of answers. Includes an afterword and suggestions for parents. The simple question of the title is one likely to cause momentary heart palpitations in the adult to whom it's directed. How does one answer children? How much should one tell, and to what age child? Should the answer be factual, spiritual, circuitous? Here is a well thought through book that gives many answers to where people go when they die. The child in the story hears a factual answer: "into the ground (to) become part of earth and of nature;" and a reassuring one: "into our hearts to make us strong." She hears several other answers before asking herself the question and expressing her own understanding in a way that feels comfortable to her. Portnoy, a rabbi, brings a rich sensitivity to her text, while award-winning artist Haas paints gentle, reassuring water colors with lovely, heartwarming details to add strength to this beautiful book.
