Who can say with absolute certainty where people go when they disappear? Do we go to the same place that lost socks go to? Or do we perhaps evaporate into the skies like puddles? Children ask big questions, and this book seeks to provide some answers.
This charming book tackles a serious theme in a philosophical and often whimsical way by drawing on the world around us for ideas, and offers children a new way of looking at the world. The conclusion? "Nothing is too empty a place to be in. And if we all go there, it will cease to be nothing in no time."
Praise for Where Do We Go When We Disappear?
"A book that challenges them to think about their world in different, unexpected ways."
