About the Book
Halo: A Story about Heaven is a 36-page picture book about faith and healing. The main character, Jessi, is visited by a majestic white dog who takes her on an adventure to help her understand and cope with loss. Although the story calls the afterlife “heaven,” Halo is otherwise non-denominational with broad spiritual undertones, and draws from near-death accounts from all over the globe.
This story focuses on rich imagery, an inclusive and loving point of view, and a narrative that can stand on its own. The goal is for Halo to be less educational and more an open-ended source of comfort and inspiration that can help foster dialogues in which adults can answer questions about death and spirituality as they see fit.
