Joe and his friends miss Lucy very much. When she died and they learned they wouldn’t see Lucy again they were all very sad. But Joe has a plan: he can remember the happy times he shared with Lucy!He thinks about all the wonderful things Lucy did.

How messy she was when she was painting, and the time she giggled through the school play when her crown kept slipping off. Now Joe knows that remembering Lucy means he doesn’t have to feel so sad! Children with SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) often experience grief at a much younger age than other children. This touching short story will help children with SEND aged 3+ understand feelings caused by death and loss, and the beautiful hand drawn illustrations help convey the complex experience of bereavement in a simple and clear way.

Included is a teacher’s guide to talking about bereavement, grief and loss, making this the ideal aid for teachers and support staff at SEND schools and colleges.
