What Does Dead Mean? is a beautifully illustrated book that guides children gently through 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. Prompts encourage children to explore the concepts by talking about, drawing or painting what they think or feel about the questions and answers.

Suitable for children aged 4+, this is an ideal book for parents and carers to read with their children, as well as teachers, therapists and counsellors working with young children.
This book is designed to assist adults helping children (4+ years) deal with death and dying. Illustrated, it sets out some facts in a straightforward way, but also asks questions to help children express themselves by word or drawing, or to ask further questions. This would be a useful book to have tucked away on the shelf in the hospice, to be loaned out from time to time.
