Helping Children Understand Death

Buschelia, Leo. The Fall of Freddy the Leaf.   New York:  Slack Incorporated, 1982.  ISBN:0-8050-7195-4.  $10.17 hard back  Explaining death to a child  Explaining death to a child is not an easy task. The best book I have found for this is The Fall of Freddy the Leaf,  by Leo Buschelia.  I have found this book to have a very sound Catholic theology and an excellent pedagogy.  I was introduced to it by excellent parents helping their children understand the death of their grandmother. (It works.)    

Babbitt, Natalie  and  Maguire, Gregory.  Tuck Everlasting. [A children's novel]  Macmillan. 1975.  ISBN: 0374378487  A Novel:   Doomed to—or blessed with—eternal life after drinking from a magic spring, the Tuck family wanders about trying to live as inconspicuously and comfortably as they can. When ten-year-old Winnie Foster stumbles on their secret, the Tucks take her home and explain why living forever at one age is less a blessing that it might seem. Complications arise when Winnie is followed by a stranger who wants to market the spring water for a fortune.-- Babbitt asks profound questions about the meaning of life and death, and leaves the reader with a greater appreciation for the perfect cycle of nature. Intense and powerful, exciting and poignant, Tuck Everlasting will last forever--in the reader's imagination. An ALA Notable Book. (Ages 9 to 12) --Emilie Coulter.
