Review: Henry Says Good-bye by Edward T Welch

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Henry the hedgehog loves his pet ladybug. She keeps him company and entertains him, his family, and his friends with her flying tricks. But one day, he has to say good-bye to his ladybug. Henry and his whole family are sad, but they learn to go to Jesus with their sadness and ask him to comfort them.

The last page contains information for parents on how God, in his Word, helps us turn to Jesus when we are sad. Together children and parents will be guided into meaningful conversations about living by faith in the details of everyday life. Also included is a tear-out page of Back Pocket Bible Verses that will give children a practical way to remember God's words when they are sad.

My Review: 

Henry Says Good-bye: When You Are Sad is the fourth installment from the Good News for Little Hearts series. I thought this was such a cute and sweet story. It teaches a little boy that it is okay to grieve when you lose a loved one, including a pet. The illustrations went along with the book perfectly. I, especially, loved the Bible verses at the end. 

I give Henry Says Good-bye: When You Are Sad five stars.

I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
