Sensitive, understanding resources for very young children are hard to find. We think this story/workbook is worded and illustrated in a manner that will really speak to them and hold their attention. It deserves to be more widely known and used.
In it, two teddy bear friends tell how they learned about death and saying goodbye after Grandma Bear died. But this story workbook is for young children losing any special loved one. The story is told in an honest, direct, non-threatening way. Without this kind of honesty, children, because they are children, often make up ideas about what they think has happened.
Honest, gentle explanations by Mommy and Daddy Bear combine with guided drawing and writing exercises to encourage young children to learn by playing along. A most endearing workbook for very young children, great for individual or group use.
