I hope I've out this in the right place - apologies if not.

A friends son is 4 yrs old and is asking lots of question about death. She wants to be as honest as possible without upsetting him.

Can anyone recommend a book to help with the subject

I love Frog and The Birdsong by Max Velthuisj (spelling?) - check it out on Amazon - very simple and sweet and explains death in a gentle way showing that life goes on too

Badger's Parting gift is nice. I'm not sure who it's by but it explains death without referring to it directly (if I recall correctly). I have sen it for sale in Waterstones and Borders.

agree with dizzymac - Badgers Parting Gift is a lovely book
