Little hedgehog under the old tree
Het egeltje onder de oude boom
A sad but important picture book that tells about losing a loved one. It is written from the experience of the author, who lost her child about 20 years ago. At the time she was in need of a book to explain her healthy daughter her little sister would not recover. This book was sadly yet to be written, so after many years she did so herself.
For every parent, family member or teacher that needs a bit of help when discussing illness and death with a child.
