Suddenly it is goodbye
A story for everyone who has lost a sibling.
When a sibling dies many things change in a child’s life – family structure, daily routine, their friend’s behaviour, parents who are upset and not coping, a feeling of tremendous loss and sadness. Children will experience all sorts of feelings.
This book helps children to understand and talk about their grief and to understand that their feelings are normal and part of the healing process.
For ages 2 – 13, but can be helpful for everyone who has lost a sibling.
“ So many thanks for your charming book written in memory of your brother Robert-Karl;
it so accurately describes my feelings about Mark’s death. Thank you very much…” – Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla Parker Bowles
“I got the copy of your book today. I think it is fantastic, well done it is just spot on for using with children who are grieving. I can see it being used with children of all ages, the illustrations are also really good. I will certainly be recommending your book when I am counselling people and doing grief training seminars.”
“Wow, what a beautiful story. I had a sister who passed away before I was born and recently lost my sister-in-law so I understand the importance of a book like this for children.”
