Grandma Heaven

Shutta Crum

Heaven is a place where one can have fun. Or so thinks award-winning author Shutta Crum. When asked about death by one of her grandchildren, she imagined the perfect heaven. A place where grandmothers play hockey, have iguanas as pets, jump rope, find treasures at jumble sales, and keep a loving eye on grandchildren. Grandma Heaven, and its companion book, Grandpa Heaven, provide reassurance to young worriers that heaven is a happy place and that love never dies.

    In Grandma Heaven, grandmas drive motor scooters, ride donkeys, or race jazzy convertibles that go so fast, they have to hang onto their hairdos!” No age stereotypes or tearful sentiments here. A wonderfully diverse array of grandparents populate Grandma Heaven and its companion book, Grandpa Heaven, by award-winning author Shutta Crum. Both offer joyful, reassuring peeks at a heaven filled with fun. The text and the lively illustrations by Ruth McNally Barshaw offer cheery comfort to children asking about death and the afterlife.
