In our final post of the week, we just want to thank you for reading and by doing so marking To Absent Friends Festival with us.

We want to remind you that normalising grief, children & young people come to realise that they are not the only ones. That there isn’t something ‘wrong’ with them for feeling the way they feel. That is why we can’t recommend books and stories enough.

Some other good books read loud are I miss you: a first look at death, or You’ll Find Me – Children’s book about loss and Grieving

The Wilds Poetry Comic is a beautiful resource for older young people.

Child Bereavement UK have some really useful resources and videos, including this one about supporting a bereaved child who is autistic or one about telling a child that someone has died.
