When Dinosaurs Die; A Guide to Understanding Death

Laurie Krasny Brown and Marc Brown

Explains in simple language the feelings people may have regarding the death of a loved one and the ways to honour their memory. Suitable for ages 5-8.

Unlike many books on death for little ones, this book doesn’t tell a story. Instead, it addresses children’s fears and curiosity head-on, and in a largely secular fashion, by answering some very basic questions: “Why does someone die?” “What does dead mean?” “What comes after death?” Other questions deal with emotions, and there’s a section about death customs.

“I would recommend this book to any family dealing with loss.” – Redkite Social Worker.
