|About the Book|
How can you explain death to a child? This uplifting story, illustrated in full color, will help children who are confronting death. Meant to encourage discussion about death as a normal part of life, it tells about a young cancer patient who finds comfort in her friendship with a caterpillar. As the caterpillar prepares for transformation into a butterfly, the two share their fears and concerns about the unknown. . . . An indispensable tool for coping in the face of on-coming loss, notes Earl A. Grollman, D.D., author of Talking about Death: A Dialogue Between Parent and Child.
