Jesus still loves Joe – about a child whose sister has died
This story explores a young child’s experience of being a bereaved sibling and how important it is for such children to know that God loves them no matter how they feel
The book is part of the Held in Hope series, a series of sensitively written and stunningly illustrated stories about young children’s experience of being ill or facing death, and how they relate their Christian faith to their experiences.
The books include helpful notes for parents, including questions and activities to use with young children and information of other resources and organisations.
Other stories in the Held in Hope series include: Maya Goes to Hospital, Josh Stays in Hospital, and Sam and his Special Book.
Each story is also available as a free online film with the story read by Bear Grylls.
Victoria is also available to run workshops on helping to support hurting children and families. Get in touch here
‘The illustrations are simple and fit with the words beautifully. Either read from the book, or listened to and watched as the film, this story is sure to help and the simplicity may even speak to the adult reading it to, or watching it with, the child.’ Mary Bartholomew – The Good Bookstall 06/05/2011.
