The Beautiful Way to Explain Death to Children
When the death of a relative, a friend, or a pet happens or is about to happen . . . how can we help a child to understand?
Lifetimes is a moving book for children of all ages, even parents too. It lets us explain life and death in a sensitive, caring, beautiful way. Lifetimes tells us about beginnings. And about endings. And about living in between. With large, wonderful illustrations, it tells about plants. About animals. About people. It tells that dying is as much a part of living as being born. It helps us to remember. It helps us to understand.
Lifetimes . . . a very special, very important book for you and your child. The book that explains—beautifully—that all living things have their own special Lifetimes.
Our 9 year old cat died today and my 9 year old daughter found him in her room. We all took it hard because the only thing out of the ordinary was that he was starting to hide in areas of the house he never went. I explained as generic as possible but I found this book that made understanding better. This is a great book for children and when my daughter feels down, we can re-read this story again. Good book!
Bought it years ago when my mother in law passed. Excellent explanations!!!
