Synopsis

Goodbye Grandma by Melanie Walsh

A lift-the-flap book to help very young children cope with bereavement. When a little boy is told that his grandma has died, he isn't really sure what death means. In this reassuring lift-the-flap book with bold and colourful illustrations, he asks his mum important questions about death and bereavement. Why do people have to die? What happens to them once they are dead? What can he do to remember his grandma? Through this gentle dialogue between parent and child, Melanie Walsh sensitively explores the issues surrounding death and bereavement from a child's perspective.
