Steve Sweeney, Director of Bereavement Support Sector Scotland, Child Bereavement UK
There is a saying that if a child is old enough to ask a question, they are old enough to be given an answer. We need to protect our children with the truth in sensitive and caring ways. This book does exactly that, through thoughtful and expressive illustrations, augmenting a dialogue based on real conversations. Exploring and sharing this book again and again with your child will become part of your journey of healthy grieving.

Elke has once again captured what is needed for aiding bereaved children's understanding. Sensitive, caring and developmentally appropriate, this book is a fantastic resource for explaining what happens to a person's body after death. I'm sure it will help countless children and their caregivers with some of the most difficult questions.
