The death of a loved one has to be processed, accepted and those who survive need to express themselves and their feelings in order to move on. It is challenging enough without having to endure the additional trauma of explaining it to a child, but unfortunately a lot of people have no other option.
This book is a tool for parents to explain and to help you and your child cope with your circumstances in order to strengthen your bonds and to fortify you as a family for whatever comes next.
Through the story of Maria, a little girl who is trying her best to cope with the death of her brother, this book highlights all the feelings, thoughts and emotions a child may expect to experience. Maria, like most children find the concept of death complicated and they find it difficult to communicate and convey what they are feeling at a time when they see loved ones struggling to cope. This is what stops them from asking questions and expressing their feelings.
By fostering an affinity with Maria, we hope that this story encourages your children to ask you questions, relieve them of any misconceptions they may foster about death and to help them feel secure and to be comfortable enough within the constrains of the difficult circumstance to confide their thoughts and feelings about their loss to you.
As a book, Heaven Me and You it is unique in the way that it deals with the concept of death and its purpose is to soothe and renew the reader’s bonds with the person who died and to remind them that their loved one will always be loved.
