|What do children know and how do they communicate their experiences are explored in this collection of short stories that focus on children's extrasensory experiences.
The little boy is special. He was born deaf and although he now hears, his early isolation has left him with abilities that no one around him seems to understand. He knows when people are going to die. He attempts to tell others but when he tries to communicate what he knows, he is misunderstood because he communicates as a child, not an adult. Even when his message is heard, it contains a mystery. What does this child know?
A young boy lies near death from pneumonia. Suddenly he has visitors. When the crisis occurs in his illness, he is not alone. Who is there and what they say influences his condition and ability to survive. He does not speak of it, however, until many years later when he declares what he learned the night he almost died. It is more than a near death experience. This is a story that has both an inspirational message and a mystery for readers to decide.
The little girl has playmates only she can see. She sees dead people and events before they happen. Her father thinks that she is bewitched or possessed until a visitor makes him look at his daughter's abilities as a gift. The story again demonstrates how children experience events and communicate their experiences. Like the other stories, it seeks to help adults understand what and how children communicate.
All of the stories are based on true life events relayed to the author by the children and their families.
