When a Friend Dies Coloring Book
Easy, fun, non-threatening way to support a child experiencing the tragedy of losing a friend. What can we say, or what can we do? Coloring books are a natural and easy approach to address a delicate topic.
Addressing death and mortality can be difficult. When A Friend Dies provides Christians with an easy way to help children heal. When A Friend Dies can be used by counselors, parents, and teachers. The coloring book is designed for a caring adult to read to children while they color the pages. Each time the child begins to color is another opportunity to read the entire coloring book to encourage and nurture the child we are caring for. The book can serve as either a launching point to discussion and conversation, or can be given to the child even without direct supervision. Thus, children can still learn, about greif and death, but from a standpoint they are emotionally comfortable with.
