Where is Grandpa?

Children’s Books About Death

Where is Grandpa? is a heartwarming children’s book by Leland P. Gamson that tackles the sensitive topic of death gently and comfortably.

The story revolves around Hannah, a young girl who learns about her other Grandpa, whom she never got the chance to meet.

Through conversations with her Grandma Brown, Hannah begins to understand that her Grandpa has passed away and is now in Heaven with Jesus.

Grandma Brown explains that while their bodies are buried in the town cemetery, their spirits live on in a happy and lovely place called Heaven.

Hannah’s curiosity leads her to ask questions about what Heaven is like, and Grandma Brown assures her that they will all be reunited someday.

With its Christian perspective and beautifully illustrated by Leigh Ann Cledgett, Where is Grandpa? provides comfort and hope for children who have lost a grandparent.

This book is being used by funeral homes and counseling services to help grieving children and is highly recommended by readers who have found it to be a valuable tool for initiating conversations about life and death with their own children.

Join Hannah on her enlightening journey of understanding and discovering the profound messages of love, faith, and eternal life in Where is Grandpa?.

Excerpt from the book:

One day Grandma Brown showed Hannah a picture. “This is your father’s father, Grandpa Brown. He was my husband for over 30 years. We lived together in this house.”
“Then he is my other Grandpa,” said Hannah.
“Where is my other Grandpa now?”
“Grandpa Brown died before you were born,” answered Grandma Brown. His body is buried in the town cemetery.”

Excellent Book


“Where is Grandpa?” is a very good book to initiate conversations between children and parents about life and death and what lies beyond death.

This subject matter is generally taboo or simply avoided for most families due to the level of discomfort that most of us have concerning our own mortality and the mortality of our loved ones. It answers questions for children in an age-appropriate manner that is not too overwhelming or heavy for children to absorb.

The idea of addressing this subject matter is to help families deal with this reality in all of our lives and to prepare children for the eventuality of death and everlasting life.

I love the child Hannah


Author Leland P. Gamson tackles the question of death in Where Is My Grandpa? I love the child Hannah. As children do once their curiosity is aroused – in this case, about death – Hannah asks one question after another until she is satisfied and assured.

Grandma just as realistically answers each question simply and uses Jesus’s words to assure her granddaughter of the truth. Leigh Ann Cledgett’s illustrations are appropriately soft, depicting the reality of death and the hope of the afterlife.

Where Is My Grandpa? fits in your child’s library.
