Oh NO Where Did He Go! has helped children understand the assurance and JOY that comes from following Jesus.

Kay E. Thomson’s book, Oh NO, Where Did He Go! Understanding How Children Handle Death and Loss ($30.99, hardcover, 9781662821707; $9.99, ebook, 9781662821714), is available for purchase.

Oh NO, Where Did He Go! Understanding How Children Handle Death and Loss will help young readers understand the immense love that God showed with His son's sacrifice on the cross. It teaches that at death, our soul leaves our old, tired, sick bodies and moves to heaven, where God provides us with a new body if we have accepted Jesus as our Savior.

“Oh NO Where Did He Go! has helped children understand the assurance and JOY that comes from following Jesus,” said Kay Thomson.

Kay Thomson and her husband, Dale, have two beautiful girls and 6 grandchildren. They spent 25 years teaching Sunday School: 21 years with middle schoolers, high schoolers, and then 4-year-old kids. They had many experiences and opportunities to share the grace and love of God. When Dale moved his residence to heaven, it provided a new experience for the grandchildren to understand where their grandpa was and what he was like now. Kay now resides in Roseville, CA and is the author of two other books: Journey to Joy and Finding JOY in the Midst of Grief.

Macey Donley, illustrator of Oh No, Where Did He Go! is Kay Thomson’s granddaughter. As a girl, Macey drew all the time and as she got older, she dedicated more time to her love and skill for art. She is studying Psychology at San Diego State University and recently received her Emergency Medical Technician certification.

Dr. Craig Kraft is a loving husband and father of four adult boys and is the Executive Director of Outreach Canada. Craig and Kay have walked the path of grief together for Craig’s mother (one of Kay’s best friends) and Kay’s husband (a very special uncle to Craig).
