“When Baba Died”: http://www.paschapress.com/

When My Baba Died introduces children to the contemporary practice of funeral preparation and burial, within the liturgical rites of the Orthodox Church. It is 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.”
