Hi. 3 is quite young to understand death, there are books out there but most for older children. One for the young crowd is titled: I miss you, a first look at death by ***** *****. There are others that are good but for a three year old I wouldn't recommend. The concept that he is in a grave and gone to heaven is difficult. My condolences to your family, I hope this helps.
