An Illustrated Storybook to Help Children Cope with Loss and Suicide
It is a beautiful spring day, and Luna is having a picnic in the park with her family, wearing her Mum’s red hat. Luna’s Mum died one year ago and she still finds it difficult to understand why. She feels that it may have been her fault and worries that her dad might leave her in the same way. Her dad talks to her to explain what happened and together they think about all the happy memories they have of mum.
This storybook is designed to be read with children aged 6+ who have experienced loss of a loved one by suicide. It includes a guide for parents and professionals by bereavement expert, Dr Riet Fiddelaers-Jaspers.
