Format: Hardcover
Susan Varley is amazing. I've read everything I can find written for children about death, and this is by far the best. And it's not just for kids. I bought this book to share with my children after my brother's death five years ago. They seemed to connect with it, but I think it spoke even more to me than it did to them. We've since experienced other losses, and this is always the first book that comes off the shelves. I'm now buying copies for an adult friend who lost his father, and elementary school classmates of my sons' whose mother just died from cancer. If you or someone you care about are grieving, try this book. You may find some smiles amidst the tears.

I read this book to my kids when they were younger and my dad was gravely ill. He pulled through that time, but died a few months ago. Our copy has disappeared in the meantime, but I thought this book important enough to order a copy for my young niece and nephew. A few months after a death, when the initial pain has worn off a little, or when a death may be imminent seem like the perfect times to read this story. Badger's friends are sad, but at a stage when they are able to remember wonderful things about his life and their frienships with him.

Bought several for my children and nieces to read to their children. When my father-in-law died, I gave these as gifts so all of the parents could read to their young children, who were under the age of 5. The parents all appreciated and have read them to their children several times. Now my mother-in-law wants to purchase several to leave at the hospice in London and to leave at the Children's Hospital - in the waiting rooms.
This book has made dealing with loss and understanding that great grandpa is not hurting a little easier for our small famil.

From the wonderful artwork to the marvelous characters, this book is a touching look at death, and how life goes on. Badger's friends are saddened by his passing, but they come to realize that everyone lives on through their gifts of kindness and the happy memories that remain. Only one caution: if you've experienced the loss of a "Badger" in your own life, this book can reduce you to tears in about five minutes (said from experience!) Cleansing, ultimately uplifting, but may be harder on adults than kids... Highly recommended.

Badger's Parting Gifts is a beautifully written story. It is able to delicately explain what happens to a loved one when they pass-- something I was having trouble doing with my 4 year old when his grandfather passed. It's a heartwarming and memorable book that I would highly recommend to anyone who has lost someone special in their life and needs to explain it to a child in a sensitive way. Loved it.
