There are few good books out there for helping children to understand about the loss of a pet or a loved one, and this is one of the best for younger children. This book gently explains about "alive" and "dead" and carefully talks about the different causes of death from war to suicide. It explores the feelings you might have if someone died and asks the important questions about why does someone die and how can you say goodbye? Different people have different ways of honoring the dead. What can you do to remember someone?
