About the Book

Three year old Sam learns of his beloved grandmothers move to Heaven. Given his innocent age, he thinks literally when his mother tells him he can still talk to grandma Angela in Heaven, which is way up in the sky. Sam goes on an imaginative adventure, plotting creatively bold ways to talk to his grandmother from so far away. 

Can You Hear Me In Heaven? is that of a darling, lighthearted tone, meant to gently assist any grown up in explaining death to a child through love and whimsey.

Blank pages in the back of the book for writing loving notes of remembrance.
