The Present Box
How do you explain death and a funeral to a child?
Michelle Jewels-Parsons, Funeral Celebrant, Speaker, Author and End of Life Companion, along with her 6-year-old Niece Ellie have created a beautiful children’s book exploring themes of death and funerals, accompanied by vivid illustrations hand drawn by Ellie.
Grandparents, Parents and children alike will be enchanted by the hand drawn imagery and delight in the simple and easy to understand style in which it has been written.
The Present Box follows the story of a young child who experiences the death of someone they love. Across many stages of grief and loss, the child comes to terms with the concept of death and prepares for ‘the goodbye day’, the Funeral.
The Present Box is a warm and gentle way of introducing all the components of a Funeral to a young child.
But how do you say goodbye to someone you love, when you are barely old enough to understand the concept of life and now of death?
With simple language and charming illustrations, this book is sure to become a supportive authority in the education of death and funerals for children.
