Dealing with death ISBN: 9780750216418
Haughton, Emma
Published by Wayland, 1995

Colour photographs and lengthy text give lots of information about death and dying - even one's own death. There are sections on the death of parents, siblings, grandparents and friends, and many examples of young people coping in different ways are given. Sensitive and detailed, this should answer questions for an older child going through the painful grief process. Some of the legal ramifications are explained too. A list of further reading and some organisations that can help are given. Most useful for secondary school libraries.
Age: 11+
