This week’s question was shared on our Facebook page.
One of our readers is in need of advice or a prayer book to help her fourth-grader understand suffering and loss. Recently there were several deaths in the family as well as the death of a classmate, and now the family dog is seriously ill. During bedtime prayers the child has expressed anger at God and is, overall, very upset. If you have advice or a book to recommend for our reader to read to or with her child, it would be greatly appreciated!
