What Does Dead Mean?

A Book for Young Children to Help Explain Death and Dying

Caroline Jay and Jenni Thomas

This is beautifully illustrated book that guides children gently though 17 of the ‘big’ questions they often ask about death and dying. Questions such as ‘Is being dead like sleeping’, ‘Why do people have to die?’ and ‘Where do dead people go?’ are answered simply, truthfully and clearly to help adults explain to children what happens when someone dies.
