Katie Tekulve has released a new book that will help ease the pain and grief of all those that have lost a loved one, but especially children. Where Do We Go? Nobody Knows. is unique in that it not only sends a comforting message but also can foster a conversation between an adult and a child about what happens after the death of a loved one. It accomplishes this through the use of incredible, thought-provoking illustrations and rhyming text.
“I know that the grief of a loved one is hard for anyone to come to terms with but especially hard for children who want to know where that loved one is now. That’s where I got the inspiration for my book,” commented Tekulve. “I believe most people fear death because it’s the fear of the unknown. I wanted to find a way to turn that unknown into an adventure – that there can be wonderment of what comes next instead of fear.”
The book makes an excellent keepsake gift. Flowers die and cards are misplaced, but this is a memorial gift that will be long-lasting and passed on to others. And the illustrations are truly enchanting works of art that bring the story of a unique and captivating adventure about hope, spirituality, and the possibilities of what comes next. The views of ancient times and modern theories in this poetic and thought-provoking perspective on mythological, religious, and alternative beliefs about the afterlife come to life on the pages of this book.
“I always loved author Shel Silverstein when I was a kid and knew I wanted to have the text rhyme. I wanted each section to flow into the next both verbally and through the art. This is why I chose to use birds as the subject that flies through each afterlife,” stated Tekulve. “I wanted to end with a good message that was about acceptance and tolerance for all views while each of us chooses for ourselves.”
The 32-page book is available from Amazon in paperback, hardcover as well as on Kindle at https://amzn.to/2O2ERrG. Funeral homes may find it a perfect gift to provide to young children who have lost their parents as well as a great addition to the funeral home’s grief lending library. Where do we go? Nobody knows. is not just a mind-opening book for all ages, but a work of art.
