Halo: A Story about Heaven is a 36-page picture book about faith and healing. The main character, Jessi, is visited by a majestic white dog who takes her on an adventure to help her understand and cope with loss. Although the story calls the afterlife “heaven,” Halo is otherwise non-denominational with broad spiritual undertones, and draws from near-death accounts from all over the globe.
This story focuses on rich imagery, an inclusive and loving point of view, and a narrative that can stand on its own. The goal is for Halo to be less educational and more an open-ended source of comfort and inspiration that can help foster dialogues in which adults can answer questions about death and spirituality as they see fit.
This project was made possible by over 100 generous backers on Kickstarter.com.
