This book was written to help children understand the concepts of change, loss, farewells, and endings. It was also written to encourage children to discuss their thoughts and emotions about these events with parents and teachers. It contains beautifully illustrated examples of ‘Goodbye’ moments that children can identify with. The calming colours and gentle, reassuring words, combine to help children understand that loss is a part of life. When we say goodbye, it's ok to feel sad, but the memories remain in our hearts and minds forever. The characters in the illustrations tell a story, can you discover what that is? What does the balloon represent? All is revealed at the end of the book. Happy reading!
