'What happens when someone dies? A book for adults and children to share together’ was written by SeeSaw's Jenny Armstrong.
When someone special dies, it can be a really confusing time for children as they try to understand what has happened, what will happen to that person's body and even where the person is now.
The book is written for adults supporting children aged 3–11 years at this difficult time. It will also be valuable to help children with special needs. Through photographs and the use of simple language, adults will be helped to explain what happens when someone dies. The book also offers ideas to think and talk about together.
