Loss and Bereavement

Badger's Parting Gift - Story for Children


When Badger dies, his friends are very sad, but one by one, they recall the special things he gave them during his lifetime. By sharing these fond memories, they realise that although he is no longer with them physically, he will always be in their hearts. A book that deals gently and clearly with issues of loss and death for young children.
