Jesus knew how scary it is when someone gets really sick. He knew how sad it is when someone dies. Jesus cried when his friend, Lazarus, died. But he did something at his friend’s tomb that changed everything. He showed that he came to give his friends life after death. In this vivid, moving and exciting retelling of the story of Lazarus, Lauren Chandler helps children understand that Jesus came to say goodbye to goodbyes—forever. Children will see that because Jesus rose from death, he has power over it and all who believe in him will also rise, just as Lazarus did.
"Third time reading today and the tears are flowing again. This children’s book by Lauren Chandler gives language and hope about death for kids through the story of Lazarus. If you’re a Christian parent with young kids I can’t recommend this enough." – Laura Green
