Goodbye: A First Conversation About Grief
List price £8.99
Developed by experts in the fields of early childhood and activism against injustice, this topic-driven board book offers clear, concrete language and compelling imagery to introduce the concept of grief. This book aims to normalise the topic of death by discussing what it means and how it feels to experience loss. It centre around several questions that arise about grief and honest, simple ways to answer them. While young children are avid observers and questioners of their world, adults often shut down or postpone conversations on complicated topics because it's hard to know where to begin. Research shows that talking about tough issues from the age of two not only helps children understand what they see, but also increases self-awareness, self-esteem, and allows them to recognise and confront things that are unfair, like discrimination and prejudice. These books offer a supportive approach that considers both the child and the adult. Stunning art accompanies the simple and interactive text, and the backmatter offers additional resources and ideas for extending this discussion.
