Houston, TX – WEBWIRE

For kids suffering from the loss of a loved one, Kay E. Thomson offers a ray of hope and compassion in an otherwise hopeless and incomprehensible world. This heartfelt book she has written, “Oh No, Where Did He Go?: Understanding How Children Handle Death and Loss,” provides a kind and understanding look at the emotional journey that children go through as they deal with death.

“Oh No, Where Did He Go?” takes its young readers through the complex and often confusing process of losing someone very special. With gentle storytelling and heartfelt illustrations, Thomson explores the myriad of emotions children face and provides comforting ways to cope. The story revolves around JT, a young boy grappling with the loss of his grandpa. JT’s questions mirror those of many children: Where is Grandpa now? How will I ever find him? How can he get out of the hole they put the big box in?

In a touching graveside event shared with family, JT’s understanding of his grandpa’s passing is gently guided by his nephew, who uses the analogy of a hermit crab. Just as a hermit crab finds a new, better-fitting shell, JT learns that his grandpa’s tired and sick body was left behind as he moved into a new, healthy body in heaven with God.

Inspired by true events, “Oh No, Where Did He Go?” draws from Thomson’s personal experience with her grandson JT. This authentic narrative not only provides relatability but also a genuine sense of comfort and reassurance. The book emphasizes that it is okay for children to feel sad and miss their loved ones, while also offering a message of hope and eternal love.

Beyond coping with loss, the book underscores a powerful lesson of faith and trust in God’s love. It beautifully conveys that just as JT’s grandpa moved to a better place, children too can find solace in the belief that they can reunite with their loved ones in heaven if they accept Jesus as their Savior. This spiritual dimension adds a layer of comfort, assuring children of the eternal bond they share with their departed loved ones.

Kay E. Thomson’s “Oh No, Where Did He Go?” is more than just a book; it is a gentle companion for children navigating the turbulent waters of grief. Through JT’s story, children will find not only answers to their questions but also a comforting reminder of the enduring love that transcends life and death.
