Life is like the Wind focuses on the complexities around death, loss and grief. It acknowledges the range of feelings associated with losing a loved one whether human or non-human. This book aims to help children not to be frightened of their reactions, but to explore their beliefs, acknowledge that others may have different ideas and then work out the ways they want to acknowledge their loss and their feelings.

      Comments about Life Is Like The Wind:

      Explaining the death of a loved one to a young child has to be one of the hardest conversations. This book provides a beautiful framework for the conversation and is sensitive to secular and religious views about death.
