One of the things I loved about the book is that there is a little white feather on every page. Children will love looking for the feather so do point it out if they do not notice it. There are beliefs that white feathers are angels of people who have died, who have been sent to watch over us. A lovely comforting idea (I always see them on my tomato plants and wonder if it is my dad giving them a little boost!) This could bring discussion about beliefs whether it is religious, spiritual or otherwise.
It is difficult sometimes to talk about death and very important that proactive work on bereavement is not started too soon after the death. Children often need time to begin to make sense of everything that has happened. Emotions can be confusing and difficult to cope with. Some children do not want to talk straight away. This little book fills that gap. It will open up conversation in a non threatening way and you can completely take the child's lead with questions they may have or comments they might make. With gentle questioning a child can open up and talk about their feelings.
