I Miss Grandpa


A book to help Adventist children understand death—and eternal life

Stevie loved visiting Grandma and Grandpa on their farm! Grandpa let Stevie feed the chickens and lambs and ride on the tractor. They always had so much fun together.

One day not long after a visit to the farm, something went wrong with Grandpa’s heart and he died. Stevie had lost his best friend. He missed his Grandpa and wondered what it was like to die.

Death is a fact of life and yet there is a hope beyond the grave. Parents sometimes find it hard to communicate that hope to small children. This book was written with you, the Adventist parent, in mind. I Miss Grandpa tenderly tells a story of love, loss, and a butterfly that helps children deal with loss and understand the good news about those who sleep in Jesus.


By Dr Frank Hasel of the GC Biblical Research Committee. 

“This is a outstanding children’s book and deals with the subject in a meaningful and hopeful way. It is beautifully illustrated and written in an attractive way by Karen. Her book is a jewel and that I hope many children (and parents – I noticed some thoughts for parents at the end) who are facing the harsh and painful reality of death can read it and that it can instil hope and be a starter for many meaningful conversations.”
