Guides to helping young children deal with difficult issues
Death is difficult to deal with at any age, but for children who are handling it for the first time, it can be extra tough. This engaging book will help young readers learn to navigate this type of situation. It features seven case studies following children who have a range of issues from a girl who misses her mum to a boy who is worried he might die. The end of the book features a short playscript to act out and discuss.
Whether it is a friend, family member or acquaintance who has passed away, readers will learn about the best ways to handle death through the help of the relatable stories and colourful illustrations. Practical advice is presented in a way readers of all ages can understand and implement into their own lives.
In this series case studies combine with sensible, practical advice to help children find out what to do in difficult situations.
