Anja  Kieffer - Granny's Journey to the Stars


Understanding Granny's death

Everybody is a star before they come to Earth – at least that is what Emilia's Mummy believes. And so, for the little girl one thing is clear: Granny has just gone back to her friends up in the sky. Mummy says that death is just a word. It means that time on Earth has come to an end. And for Granny that means that her time with the stars has begun.

This poignant story about the stars allows adults to give children a message of hope when a loved and familiar person dies and explains what happens to this person now. This sensitively written and illustrated children's book addresses these emotions and brings consolation with understanding.

• A storytime book for grieving children

• A child-friendly approach to death

• Sensitively told and affectionately illustrated
