This beautifully illustrated picture book is ideal for broaching issues surrounding loss or bereavement with children aged four to eight
Walter Smith is an author, graphic designer and illustrator. He lives on a narrow boat in Cambridge, UK.
The storydetails a journey through a year following the death of a grandfather, a year that is punctuated by memories and decisions. This is a story to share and reflect upon both with individuals and as part of a wider PHSE programme. The story would be an excellent resource to use with the SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) curriculum as it would fit very well within the somtimes emotionally challenging Relationships theme. -- Pastoral Care An interesting addition to the literature and, again, it offers a non-threatening description of cremation in the context of white, middle-class England. -- Internationa Journal of Children's Spirituality
