Always and Forever – Alan Durant and Debi Gliori

A story for young children that recognises sadness and loss when it can occur suddenly and unexpectedly, when someone who is close to us, part of the immediate family dies. This story acknowledges how shock and loss can change life, how difficult it can be to continue to enjoy life when someone you love dies, and you miss them so much. It gently and beautifully shows ways that you can carry on living, and enjoy shared memories and find ways of carrying part of who they were with you.
