This book, based on a true story, is designed to assist Christian parents and other adults who love and care about children to talk about the difficult subject of death. Discussion questions are included for each story page to help determine how much the child understands. A simple imitation game is also included to help involve the child in the story.

When little Dave�s Grandfather died, the two-year-old did not understand what �died� meant or where Grandpa had gone. The story traces a small child�s experience following a death in the family and illustrates how his mother sensitively answered his questions about death by using simple examples derived from the birth of a butterfly. Little Dave�s story is colorfully illustrated and designed for a child and parent or trusted adult to read together. The story has been created especially for children from pre-kindergarten through 4th grade.
