A comprehensive story for a very difficult topic...,

This review is from: I Had a Friend Named Peter: Talking to Children About the Death of a Friend (Hardcover)
The author includes an informative introduction for parents and other caregivers regarding how to talk with children effectively about death. I particularly appreciated the format of the story. Betsy's parents talk with her about the death of her friend in an open and supportive manner. The feelings Betsy experiences are realistic and speak to the various ways in which children may react to death. This book addresses topics including funerals, burials and creating remembrances for the deceased. A warm, wonderfully written book that can be shared with children by parents, teachers and other caring adults.
