Coming to terms with the death of a Friend

by Stephanie Jeffs and Jacqui Thomas


Price: £5.99
Publisher:Barnabas imprint of BRF
Published:21 January 2005
Josh gets to know a neighbour called Max. Max is a painter and decorator and last year Josh’s Mum had asked Max to come and decorate Josh’s bedroom, so they had become special friends. One day Josh and his sister walk past Max’s house and he isn’t there. They find out that he has been killed in a road accident and Josh does not know how to handle this news. Mum helps him to understand about death and saying goodbye. This gentle story with its attractive illustrations will help a young child to cope with this difficult experience.
