Mom, Where Are We Going?

A special story emphasizes the relationship and love among grandmother, mother and daughter.

Mom was not in a good mood. The daughter felt that she was far away from her mother. But as the mother took her daughter to the place where she often played in childhood and told her about her experiences, the distance between the two became closer and closer. Finally, they came to grandma's house together. It turned out that grandma had passed away. This was the first time they came to grandma's house after funeral. They dedicated the flowers they picked to grandma. Then the mother leaned closely into the little girl's arms. They didn't say anything, but they felt extremely close to each other.
This book is about how families deal with the pain after the death of a loved one, but it goes beyond this theme, leaving a broad space for interpretation.
