Have you ever encountered a subject that warrants a discussion with a child, but struggled with how to do it?
I know that this has happened more than once in our lives.
This could be as easy as how important a pet is in our lives or more difficult like the loss of a family member.
This is exactly what the books from Kayla Jarmon do. They take these types of topics and help you start the discussion through a story.

Our Thoughts on the Kayla Jarmon Books
Each of these titles is short enough to read in one sitting.
My youngest son loved reading A Boy and His Dog. It reinforced his deep desire to have a dog, something we are unable to do right now. But, he did delight in seeing all the fun that could be had with one by your side.
With aging grandparents experiencing health issues, the topic of death is on top of my mind. While we do not know the day or hour someone will be called home to God, there are times when you can see that the end will be coming sooner than later.
Don’t just take my word for how we found this to be. Visit Kayla Jarmon post on the Homeschool Review Crew website to see what other homeschooling parents thought about this resource.
