Grandpa Moon

Grandpa Moon
Grandpa Moon was inspired by a story shared with Cindi by a long time and dear friend of hers.
The main character, Montana, shares her name and outlook with her friend’s daughter. Cindi worked with several friends that are working counselors to ensure that the story is hopeful and helpful to families with little ones dealing with grief from the loss of a loved one.

Montana is Grandpa’s princess. They loved spending time together going for walks in the park or quietly sitting on the porch reading her favorite book. When grandpa becomes sick, and doesn’t come home from the hospital, Montana’s mom tries to help her understand why. A sweet and gentle way to look at death, for children ten and under. If your family has had to make this hard journey, this book could help.

This book is an amazing resource that addresses death in a very real way. It focuses on the feelings that death brings and it also addresses some ways that one can cope with those feelings in a healthy way. I read it with my 7 year old and he was very engaged. It opened up the door to some great conversation in a non-threatening way.
