Books and resources to help support bereaved children

Written by experts, our specialist books help parents, carers and professionals to support grieving children and young people after the death of someone close to them. They cover death by suicide, homicide, serious illness and in the military and are suitable for young children through to teenagers. You can see our books below and visit our shop to see all our resources including memory boxes. We can ship to UK addresses only.
