Our Family Support Workers have found that reading a book together with children can really help with the development of their emotions and understanding.

This is both for siblings of a seriously ill child who has recently died and also for the sick child. Books help adults and children connect, bring security and help explain things in a creative way. Following is a list of books that are recommended by our Family Support Workers.
