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. Compete 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. Recommended for ages 4 and up.

    Certainly if death and pain is hard for us as adults to understand, it is much more so for children. This book is a fabulous resource for parents trying to explain the Biblical reasons for sickness and death to their children.McKeever's book is narrated by Emily, an elementary school-aged girl who's best friend, Keiko, has been diagnosed with leukemia. In order to answer her questions about why Keiko had to get sick, Emily's parents pull out their Bible and explain from the Genesis account of creation and the fall why sickness and death are in our world.I think McKeever does a great job of explaining the "goodness" of God's original creation, the effects of sin, and why God placed the curse on His creation. She also ties in redemption, salvation, the Seed promise, and the new heaven and earth which will once again be "very good."McKeever's descriptions in this book are well worded - these are two of the explanations that I appreciated the most: "even the earthquakes and tsunamis, and the wars that you've heard Mom and I talk about... all these are terrible and sad things. But I want you to understand that they are not God's fault." "'Keiko is sick because of sin in the world,' I said. 'That's right, Emily,' he said. 'Although, I want you to understand that it's not necessarily because of any particular sin that you or I have committed.'"The back of this book contains a two page "things to do and talk about together" section. These simple activities, discussion questions, and guided Scripture studies would be great to go through with a child who is starting to ask questions about suffering.The illustrations in this book are nice, although not fabulous. This is definitely a book I would see us using as a resource when my kids have questions, rather than a fun-to-read picture book! While you could probably start with a younger child who has experienced a recent loss, I think this book would be most beneficial for early elementary ages.
