About this title:

Synopsis:

This uplifting hardcover picture book for ages 5-10 beautifully illustrates the steps a family takes when a Greek Orthodox Christian loved one dies as told through the perspective of a little boy. We take the reader through the events surrounding the visitation, witness the church ceremony and graveside service, and discuss the importance of Mnimosino prayers. Along the way, the most commonly asked questions children have about death and funerals are answered. Fears are alleviated by gently showing what to expect and explaining beforehand what the child will see. Most importantly, the comfort of the Orthodox Faith and our hope in Christ is affirmed. Extensive glossary with in-depth discussion of Greek Orthodox funerary terms included. With foreword by Rev. Konstantinos Tsiolas, pastor of St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church, Winnipeg, Canada. Of interest not only for members of the Orthodox Faith, but also mortuary students and elementary teachers who wish to explore multicultural customs in a unit study pertaining to religions of the world, between various Christian denominations, or a compare/contrast of ancient and contemporary funerary ritual.

Review:

"When My Baba Died and When My Yiayia Died introduces children to the contemporary practice of funeral preparation and burial, within the liturgical rites of the Orthodox Church. They are written in a simple, inviting way, and children will be greatly helped to understand what is happening at an otherwise distressing and confusing time. The illustrations are lovely."

-Frederica Mathewes-Green, Orthodox speaker and author of 10 books, including Welcome to the Orthodox Church and Facing East, A Pilgrim's Journey into the Mysteries of Orthodoxy.

 

"This beautifully written book addresses the importance of helping children deal with the death of loved ones. As a monk who has spent many years helping families get through the grieving process, both as a priest and police chaplain, this beautifully written book, filled with wonderful photos, is an important aid for those who wish to help a child understand death, and loss. I highly recommend it for every church bookstore, and every home library."

-Abbot Tryphon, All-Merciful Saviour Monastery, Vashon Island, WA

 

"When My Baba Died and When My Yiayia Died are welcome resources for Orthodox caregivers facing the difficult task of tenderly guiding their children through the mourning process. The author, Marjorie Kunch, writes gently and straightforwardly about what to expect at an Orthodox funeral service and the array of emotions attached to grief. Kids and adults alike will greatly benefit from these unique tools for teaching Orthodox Christians of all ages about the Church's hope-filled response to death and eternity." 

-Molly Sabourin, author of Close to Home: One Orthodox Mother's Quest for Patience, Peace and Perseverance

 

"These wonderful books easily guide children through the funeral process, while helping to instill a lifelong reverence for and understanding of the importance of funerals."

-Alexandra Kathryn Mosca, author of Grave Undertakings and Green-Wood Cemetery
