"Let's Talk About When Someone Dies" by Molly Potter (Featherstone)

Molly Potter is the author of many brilliant self-help books for helping children deal with difficult subjects...
In "Let's Talk About When Someone Dies" Molly Potter and Sarah Jennings have devised a really heartfelt and touching book to help parents and children deal with the subject of loss and grief.

The best-selling author of "How Are You Feeling Today?" and "What's Worrying You?" turns her attention to a book for starting conversations with children about death, bereavement and what happens next. 

When someone dies, we can feel a whole host of different emotions and explaining them to a child isn't so easy. 

This book uses clear, easy-to-understand language to answer complex questions about death and how a child might feel when someone dies. 

t covers all manner of tricky subjects with sensitivity and honesty, from what death is to why people die. Each double page spread takes a child through how they might feel, what they might think and how they might behave. 

With engaging illustrations from Sarah Jennings, gentle guidance and simple advice for parents and carers, "Let's Talk About When Someone Dies" sensitively deals with a subject that most adults feel inadequately equipped to deal with - so imagine how children must feel. 

"Let's talk about when someone dies" by Molly Potter and Sarah Jennings is out now, published by Featherstone Publishing (kindly supplied for review).
