‘Benny’s Hat’ deals so quietly with the huge subject of a sibling dying, from the viewpoint of a sister.
It shows beautifully how children and young people might deal with serious illness and death differently from adults. The story gives adult readers examples of how to support children when a sibling is not expected to live, not only from the section for parents at the back, but also by watching Friz’s parents’ reactions to her behaviour.
A wonderfully helpful book for supporting families, children and young people through pre- and post-bereavement.
