About the Books
Kayla Jarmon is Christian mother, wife, and homeschooler. She loves storytelling, which has blossomed into her authoring a increasing collection of books for families! Her collection is starting with three lovely books:
A Boy and His Dog
Don't Forget Me (Book 1 in the Discussion Book Series)
Dying is Part of This World (Book 2 in the Discussion Book Series)
The author shared that they are currently working on radio drama/audio books for these selections, and to eventually make all of her books available in audio format. These books are all available in print and for Kindle (or the like). These books are of a Christian worldview and incorporate some doctrinal beliefs in their material.
Our Thoughts on These Books
Because we were given the flip version of these books, I had to use my laptop to read them. I would have preferred to have had the Kindle version, but that just wasn't an option for us at this time.
Because we believe differently about what happens after death in our faith, I had to do a LOT of rewording to make it work for us. We ended up actually skipping several pages. Thus my thoughts are---if you don't believe in the traditional idea of heaven/hell or the immortal soul, this book won't be a good fit for you. But there were several parts of the story that were very good and easy for a child to understand relating to the loss of loved ones in general.
I really like the premise of the 2nd and 3rd books. Making hard questions into a type of read aloud discussion book is very clever. I would be very interested in reading others in this series by the author.
