The Forever Sky is a picture book for children about death and dying.  This book is beautifully illustrated and may be a helpful read for parents to share with children who are dealing with the death of a love one.  In the story, an uncle consoles his grieving nephews after the death of their beloved grandmother by taking them stargazing.  Over the course of several nights the two boys learn of a belief that some ancient Native Americans held that the Milky Way is the “Path of Souls” to the afterlife for relatives who have died.
