Rafi's Red Racing Car : Explaining Suicide and Grief to Young Children Hardback

Description

Rafi the rabbit loves playing with his daddy, and especially with his favourite toy - a red racing car.

But one day his daddy gets so sad and confused that he goes out and doesn't come back.

Rafi is confused and scared. This imaginative, compassionate book aims to help young children come to terms with the loss of a family member to suicide.

Rafi's story explains what suicide is in a sensitive yet honest way, and helps children understand the many overwhelming emotions of grief.

Though Rafi struggles with confusion, anxiety, anger and sadness, he learns that his feelings are natural.

With love, guidance, therapeutic activities and the fun memories kept alive in his red racing car, he gradually begins to feel happy again. Illustrated with beautiful watercolour pictures, this book ends with an informed, straightforward guide for parents and professionals on how best to help a grieving child to heal.
