Ollie the Octopus and the Memory Treasures

A Story to Help Kids After Loss or Bereavement

Illustrator
In a magical underwater forest lived a colourful and loveable Octopus called Ollie, who loved swimming with his friends and spending time with his mum and dad, Orla and Orson the Octopuses.

Until one day, when Orla started to get very sick. The doctors did everything they could to help her, but very sadly, Orla died. Ollie had so many thoughts and feelings spinning around in his head, and his heart was hurting -- what can Orson and Ollie's friends do to help?

This story will help children aged 5-10 to understand big feelings relating to grief and bereavement and explores ways to stay connected to your loved one and to keep them in your heart and in your head.

The text is very movingly written, and the illustrations outstanding. A beautiful book that will provide comfort and solace. There is a picture of Ollie that can be photocopied for colouring-in and some questions that can be used in schools or by parents or carers.
