Series: Books Beyond Words.Publisher: London Gaskell|St George's Hospital Medical School 2004Edition: 3rd rev ed.Description: 28, [22] p. : col. ill. ; 21 cm.ISBN: 1904671039.Subject(s): MOTHERS | FUNERAL ARRANGEMENTS | DEATH | BEREAVEMENT | GRIEF | NONVERBAL COMMUNICATIONSummary: When Dad Died and When Mum Died are two full colour cartoon books with a gentle but honest and straightforward approach to death in the family. The pictures tell the story of the death of a parent in a simple but moving way. The approach is non-denominations and one book illustrates a cremation, the other a burial. Adolescents and adults with a learning disability will find the pictures are meaningful with or without the text. The book will help to inform readers about the simple facts of death and about feelings of grief. For bereaved readers the story may parallel their own experience. Parents friends or professionals will be able to help them share their own story of loss, and guide them to new hope in their own futures-just as the story ends on an optimistic note. The story begins and ends in the family photograph album, and readers are encouraged to turn to their own albums later. [AJ].
