Seeds of Hope Bereavement & Loss Activity Book
This wonderful, visual resource helps children understand loss, death and change in a gentle and honest way.
Empowering and practical, it leads them on a path of recovery and healing using nature as a theme. Each page has a beautifully presented purposeful activity, building resilience and a range of transferrable coping skills in a meaningful and engaging manner.
Very useful resource for parents and professionals to support those experiencing divorce, separation, loss, missing a loved one who has moved away.
"As a teacher for more than thirty years, I have had in my care many children who have suffered the loss of a parent, sibling or close friend. Death for all of us is devastating but for a child it will create a wealth of emotions that are incomprehensible. For each it is unique. The Seeds of Hope Bereavement and Loss Activity Book gives a wide variety of ideas to help the child explore, recognise and accept their feelings in a concrete, thoughtful and healing way. I would highly recommend it to all those in education, to empower you when needed or as a way of teaching about death and renewal on a regular basis."
Yvonne Cameron, Teacher
"Understanding the cycle of nature is an essential part of understanding the cycle of life. This creative and imaginative activity book uses the world of nature to explore this. Children and adults are encouraged to discuss the beginning and the end of life in all its forms, to ask questions and seek answers together. A lifetime's experience in this area has taught me that children benefit tremendously from being helped to talk openly about these issues. I highly recommend Caroline Jay and Unity-Joy Dale's wonderful Seeds of Hope Bereavement and Loss Activity Book."
