Product description


"Helping a small child understand death can be an especially difficult task. Life is Like the Wind is just the book for a caring adult to use as a bridge when approaching this topic with a child. Facing the sadness that comes with the loss of a life, missing the loved one and celebrating their memory are approached in a manner appropriate for young children. Charming watercolor illustrations work well with this gentle message of love, kindness, and caring in the face of grief and loss."

Catholic Library World

"It's beautifully written, subtle, and despite the fact that death remains a mystery to all of us, she [Shona Innes] gets the very important message across about what it is in a way that children can comprehend. Shona Innes does an amazing job of making the subject of death a natural part of life, and does so in a soothing way, with charming illustrations by Irisz Aggocs your child will really love. All parents should read 'Life is Like the Wind' and 'Friendship is Like a Seesaw' with their children."

About the Author

Shonna Innes is a qualified clinical and forensic psychologist with many years of experience assisting children in times of trouble.
