Eight-year old Tommy comes home from school to find that his beloved grandfather has died. When Tommy asks the question “What happened to Grandpa?” his father gives him a thoughtful response – a simple but beautiful description of how that all-important question might be answered within the context of the each of the modern-day religions. Have you ever wondered what a Hindu child might think? A Muslim? A Buddhist? A Native American? This book tastefully explores cultural and religious traditions without forming any specific conclusions.

John Altson's Books

Explaining death to children is a most difficult and stressful task. We have done extensive research on the world’s religions, collaborated with two subject matter experts, found some beautiful poetry and quotations pertinent to each belief system, and packaged everything in a book which should help to make that task easier.


Tommy learns about “the ancients”

“What we know about the world’s religions is very much based
on word of mouth and folklore. Many of the religious elders
and prophets never wrote anything down; they just passed on
what they knew to the next generations.”
“Primitive people worshipped the elements such as wind, water,
and fire – which they did, in some way, understand. Much of
their behavior was based on the simple way they viewed life.”
“Thousands of years ago, the cavemen probably believed that
their lives might continue after death, because they created cave
paintings that symbolized life after death. They also placed the
tools and belongings of their loved ones next to their gravesites.
Love and respect for the elderly was very important to the
cavemen and to the ‘ancients’ many years ago.”
