Bereavement Book of the Month – November | If All the World Were…

Bereavement Book if all the world

Every month we will be highlighting suggested reads for both adults and children.

Our recommendation for this month is If All the World Were Written by Joseph Coelho and illustrated by Allison Colpoys.

A moving, lyrical picture book about a young girl’s love for her granddad and how she copes when he’s gone, written by multi-award winning poet and Waterstones Children’s Laureate Joseph Coelho.

This beautifully illustrated, powerful and ultimately uplifting text is the ideal way to introduce children to the concept of death and dying, particularly children who have lost a grandparent.
