Book Introduction:

This uplifting hardcover picture book for ages 5-10 beautifully illustrates the steps a family takes when a Greek Orthodox Christian loved one dies as told through the perspective of a little boy. We take the reader through the events surrounding the visitation, witness the church ceremony and graveside service, and discuss the importance of Mnimosino prayers. Along the way, the most commonly asked questions children have about death and funerals are answered. Fears are alleviated by gently showing what to expect and explaining beforehand what the child will see. Most importantly, the comfort of the Orthodox Faith and our hope in Christ is affirmed. Extensive glossary with in-depth discussion of Greek Orthodox funerary terms included. With foreword by Rev. Konstantinos Tsiolas, pastor of St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church, Winnipeg, Canada. Of interest not only for members of the Orthodox Faith, but also mortuary students and elementary teachers who wish to explore multicultural customs in a unit study pertaining to religions of the world, between various Christian denominations, or a compare/contrast of ancient and contemporary funerary ritual.
