Liam’s father dies but the truth is that Liam doesn’t fully understand what this means. He wonders if his dad is hiding. Liam searches in all the obvious places until his dreams lead him to the sky where he feels his dad’s presence all around him. In this sensitive and tender book, Liam learns that just as the sky is everywhere, so, too, is his father’s love. Because the Sky is Everywhere helps children accept that even though someone close to them dies, the love they feel can be everlasting.

I wish Because the Sky Is Everywhere was available for my young daughter when my husband suddenly passed away. Just as the boy in the book has the opportunity to follow his thoughts and emotions, she, too, searched for answers in her own special way. This is a perfect resource for the families I support and a gift to those in need. –Rachel Kodanaz, Grief & Loss Consultant, Author of Living with Loss, One Day at a Time and Grief in the Workplace
