Riassunto: What do you say to a child who may be dying? When It's Time is a Christian picture gift book for children with terminal illnesses and for their parents. Written as a letter from Jesus, this inspirational book of encouragement, comfort and hope, offers a bridge for communication, helps express emotions, and still leaves room for miracles. Its picture book format offers a gentle nonthreatening means for parents to talk with a child, and with each other, about the possibility of the child's death. It still leaves room for hope, without offering false hope, and without saying the child will die. The phrase, when its time and not before; calms fears and offers hope. Gentle language, coupled with correlating Scripture, reassures the reader that the picture of heaven described in the book is valid. It evokes feelings of safety, security, and peace. The simplicity of the illustrations complements a compassionate message. The parent and caregiver guide provides information about grief and loss, as well as information about how children view death. Additional sections include suggestions for communication between spouses and with children, helping other children in the family, seeking God, providing structure for children, as well as useful phrases and activities to help children express their emotions and feel comforted.
