Why do people get sick? Why do people have to die? These questions are hard to answer in any case, but when they come from a child, the task is doubly difficult. Many parents struggle with answering these questions in a satisfying and biblically sound way. Why is Keiko Sick? answers these questions and opens the door for further exploration of these and other sensitive issues. Through the story of Emily’s friend Keiko, who has been diagnosed with leukemia, children learn how the Fall in the Garden of Eden and man’s sin are responsible for sickness and death in the world. Complete with discussion questions to explore the issues further, this age appropriate book is a great way to start a conversation with your child about these important and tough questions.
