I Don't See Heaven

 

I Don’t See Heaven by Jennifer Adan, Illustrated by E.A. Morando

About the Book: Isabella is so excited to fly on an airplane with her mother, father, and baby brother. As the plane takes off the ground and soars into the sky, Isabella presses her nose against the window. She wants to see everything! But as the plane glides through the clouds, suddenly Isabella sits back in her seat and starts to cry.

Isabella is so sad. She thinks she will see her grandpa in heaven from high up in the sky, but he is nowhere to be found. As her mother and father try to comfort her, Isabella soon learns the secret to feeling better.

“I Don’t See Heaven” is the story of a little girl’s journey to the truth as she learns an important life lesson about how to keep love alive after a death. Isabella is so sad.

My Review: Isabella was so excited to be flying on a plane as she will be able to see Heaven and her Grandpa who has passed away. But when she didn’t see Heaven or her grandpa in the sky she started to cry.

I liked that Isabella’s mother made her understand that even though she can not see Heaven as it’s a very far place that even an airplane ride can not be taken to heaven. She made Isabella understand that she can feel grandpa by closing her eyes and remembering all the good times they had together.

This is a story that gives a really good explanation about how children can cope with the loss of a loved one.

 

FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.

Jennifer Adan

About the Author: Jennifer Adan’s journey began in San Mateo, California, when she was 10 years old. During a fifth-grade history class, Jennifer secretly wrote her first song unaware that it could lead to a career.  At age 15, she revealed her talent by playing her parents a song she’d written for them for their 25th wedding anniversary.  In addition, she let them know there were 100 more songs where that one came from.

After doing some research, Jennifer joined the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) and West Coast Songwriters Association (WCS).  Both organizations provided contacts and educated her on the art of songwriting as well as the music business.  After winning a songwriting contest by Jeffrey Steele, she came to Nashville to work with him and meet other talented songwriters.  Steele convinced Jennifer to make the cross-country move to Nashville away from her family in order to chase her dream.  Now, she has celebrated the success of a number one hit for Blake Shelton “She Wouldn’t Be Gone” http://jenniferadan.com/

  1. What a beautiful book. Your review Ella made me remember back to when the kids great-grandma passed away 2 years ago. She was cremated but there was an urn and a picture at the front of the room. My daughter (4 at the time) kept asking if Great-Grandma would be coming out from behind the curtains at the front of the room. We were going to see her the day she passed for lunch but she passed in the morning. Understanding death of a loved one is hard for anyone of any age to cope with.

  4. It is so hard to help kids understand death and the lose of a loved one. We’ve talked about it more recently with our kids, as they are now a bit older and wonder about what happened to so-and-so. This book sounds like it would be in line with the way kids think and view things (imaginary versus logical).
