Saying Goodbye

"This award winning book is widely used by hospices, schools, hospitals and mortuaries as well as by parents and therapists. It is a gentle, non-threatening presentation of death with a healing discussion of emotional issues." Also available as a CD, Saying Goodbye comes alive in this multimedia presentation. Difficult concepts are presented in a calm and reassuring manner. Included is a professional counselor's response to questions frequently asked by children (excluding religious issues). A guide for parents is provided which can be printed out and distributed. This guide introduces parents to a child's perception of death and also gives specific guides to providing positive emotional support for children. Students are given the opportunity to design their own condolence cards as well as to write a letter to the deceased. (Grades K-4)
