Goldy Learns about Loss and Shivah
Goldy’s Zaidy was just niftar, and Goldy has so many questions. Where did Zaidy go? Why are people coming over to their house a whole day? Why are the grownups sitting on very low chairs? Why can’t Mommy take Goldy to school?
It takes a wise and loving Bubby to explain to Goldy exactly what happened and where Zaidy has gone.
In this warm and reassuring book, the concept of death, a levayah, and shivah are brought down to a child’s level of understanding. The book gently explores the Jewish view of this sensitive topic in a way that is both clear and non-threatening to children.
