Clara and her grandfather, Clarence, have a wonderful relationship. They make snow angels, they build chicken snowmen, and use their gloves for the combs. They make up funny words and stories as they sit and rock in the old rocking chair. After Papa Clarence dies, Clara is angry at everything and everyone. She won't eat pink mints, she won't make snow angels, and she doesn't care much about anything. One day she finds the snow globe Papa Clarence had given her, and she begins to understand that her grandfather is still alive. She realizes she can't see him with her eyes anymore, but she can see him with her heart. Heaven becomes a close and real place for Clara. This charming story helps children ages 4-8 begin to understand the meaning of loss--and of love that never ends.^^
Clara's grandfather gives her a snowglobe. She loves it because she loves him. She loves him almost more than anything else on earth. When he dies she is devastated and lost. It is a long process, but Clara finds her way back and learns about life, death, and the life hereafter.
