Mudge, Gill and Steve
by Jim Dainty
Publisher:National Society / Church House Publishing
One of the best books written for children on bereavement. Gill, Steve, and their dog Mudge come face to face with death when their neighbour’s baby, Joe, dies. The book deals with death in a sensitive way and deals with questions like, Why does God allow children to die? What is a funeral? What happens after death? Will our sad feelings go away? At the end of the book, a letter written to adults, by bereaved children tries to make us understand how they feel, and that by talking things through with their parents they were helped to find the missing pieces of the jigsaw of life. The book ends with six Bible passages dealing with death.
