An open and honest conversation about death.

This book dives right into the weighty topic that most adults prefer to avoid thinking or talking about: death. It explains the practical aspects and gracefully navigates the nuances of emotion and community that surround something we all experience.

Taryn Schuelke (she/her), CT, CCLS, is the Grief and Bereavement Specialist on the Pediatric Palliative Care Team at Texas Children’s Hospital. She is certified in thanatology—death, dying, and bereavement—and a certified child life specialist. She thinks caring for children at the end of their life is a great honor and immensely sacred work.

I am so grateful I have a way to open dialogue

The perfect conversation tool for young kids

Our 5yo has been going through a lot of emotions since his grandpa passed. This book helped us talk about the process itself as well as giving him some tools to ease the feelings of anxiety and loss he couldn't quite put into words. The book is inclusive of all religions and forms of dying and easy for a kid to follow. Thank you for this great resource!

I have been reading as many children’s books about death & grief as I can since my 4 year old son died last year. My daughter (his older sister/best friend) finds it very helpful, and it is a great way for us to process our emotions together. Thank you for your excellent, straightforward coverage of yet another difficult topic.

Not really more helpful than I came up with on my own

I really hoped this book would help my child understand that death is permanent. I compared death to a flower before buying this book but it only confused him more. He thought since flowers grow back, the person who died would too. I hoped this would explain very clearly and plainly that death is permanent and that the person would never be physically with us anymore. It didn’t really convey that desired message.
