From the Author:

The death of a friend or family member affects children just as much as adults; they grieve too but often do not even have the benefit of understanding what happens when someone dies. Adults may find it difficult to talk about death and dying because of their own fears. However it is important for a child to feel that there are adults who are willing to listen to whatever they want to talk about and to answer their questions. Many other books adress the topic of childhood bereavement by using stories about animals, or by using case studies. Many children, however, have a thirst for knowledge even at very difficult times, and they need straight answers. This book is not faith-specific but does recognise that individual beliefs are relevant. This book was written as a result of direct experience of answering childrens'questions after bereavement.
