Abigail Tyler is pleased to present her new picture book for kids. This easy reading book for children contains family talking points about death and dying.
This thought-provoking picture book is written for children ages 4 to 10. It contains a variety of information designed for parents to discuss death with their children. It is illustrated with great graphic images. It offers interesting facts, in simple language. Although the material is appropriate for these ages, the subject of death is a delicate one. This book is most useful when parent and child share it together.
Students will encounter new words and concepts. They'll read about death in animals and plants. They’ll also learn how death affects a family and friends. Parents and children will find the questions that bother most children. Parents can use these ideas to address a child’s fears of death and dying. This book does not address religious perspectives. It covers changes in the family, the process of grief, and the common fears of children.
Most of the book’s images are colored drawings and photographs. These are most effective when read on a Kindle Fire, or the Kindle Application on a tablet device, or PC. They can be viewed clearly on black and white readers. Only the color dimension is lacking.
Children will also find answers to kid-style remarks.
1. Grandma died in her sleep. If I sleep, will I die?
2. I was bad. Is it my fault he died?
Teachers and home schooling parents will find this book a strong addition to their nonfiction libraries. Life changes and grief are explained for the young reader. Great illustrations bring the text to life.
