About Death: A Unitarian Universalist Book for Kids and About God: A Unitarian Universalist Book for Kids, ed. by Betsy Williams, Jane Rzepka, Ken Sawyer, and Noreen Kimball, illus. by Hannah Holby (uu&me Publishing; $14.95).

Unitarian Universalist parents struggling to help their children understand life’s big questions will appreciate a new series of books for UU kids, “Little Books About Big Stuff,” from the team that produced uu&me! magazine from 1997 to 2009.

Each book, with watercolor illustrations by Hannah Holby, starts with a story aimed at younger elementary school children. A section of questions and answers tackles some of children’s most difficult questions, such as “Why do people die?” and “Can God make stuff happen?”

A third title, About Right and Wrong, will join About Death (2012, featured above) and About God (2013) in the series this summer. (uuandmepublishing.com)
