Badger's Parting Gifts
Publisher: Andersen Press
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 succesful book that deals gently and clearly with issues of loss and death for young children.
Now 35 years old, Badger's Parting Gifts has been used by countless families experiencing bereavement to help talk about their feelings. The publisher, Andersen, has also produced these resources in association with the charity Child Bereavement UK [PDF], which are aimed at helping to use the book with bereaved children.
