Bereaved Parents and their Continuing BondsBereaved Parents and their Continuing BondsOur price: £12.50ViewFor bereaved parents the development of a continuing bond with the child who has died is a key element in grieving and how they manage their future. Using her experience of working with bereaved parents, Catherine Seigal looks at how continuing bonds are formed, what facilitates and sustains them and what can undermine them. The book offers an insight into the many and varied ways grief is experienced and expressed and what can be helpful and unhelpful. And, it offers bereaved parents the opportunity to share other parents' experiences, to understand a little more about their own feelings and to know they are not alone.

Michael Rosen's Sad BookMichael Rosen's Sad BookOur price: £7.99ViewMichael Rosen's Sad Book chronicles Michael's grief at the death of his son Eddie from meningitis at the age of 19. A moving combination of sincerity and simplicity, it acknowledges that sadness is not always avoidable or reasonable and perfects the art of making complicated feelings plain. It wasn't made like any other book either; Michael Rosen said of the text, "I wrote it at a moment of extreme feeling and it went straight down onto the page ... Quentin didn't illustrate it, he 'realized' it. He turned the text into a book and as a result showed me back to myself. No writer could ask and get more than that." And Quentin Blake says that the picture of Michael "being sad but trying to look happy" is the most difficult drawing he's ever done... "a moving experience."Michael Rosen's Selected PoemsMichael Rosen's Selected PoemsOur price: £9.99ViewKnown principally as a broadcaster and successful children's poet, Michael Rosen published his first book of poems for adults, Carrying the Elephant, in 2002, triggered by the sudden death of his teenage son, Eddie.
