This very special book on grief for young children up to 9 years is suitable for all children who are experiencing the loss of a loved one or who are preparing for the loss of a somebody close to them. Coming from a place of permission and comfort, this book will help a young one through this sad and very difficult to understand time. I drew upon my own experiences when writing this book and used what would have made me feel better when I was a little girl losing my father at a very young age. Most children will experience loss during their childhood. Be it a close family member, pet, a baby born sleeping or somebody they know. I would be very happy to have bought comfort to families with my little book. Critique "Life is wonderful and joyous and thrilling but as adults we know that it can also be brutally tough at times. On The Wings Of A Butterfly beautifully guides children through the death of a loved one. Frankly, it's a must-have for every family bookshelf. Thank you, Belinda Messer for helping me explain loss to my kids." Rebecca Sparrow, author and columnist. "On the Wings of a Butterfly is a book written from the heart. I is an engaging resource which provides a framework for children to think about life and loss. This book encourages individuality in remembering loved ones after their death. Beautiful illustrations complement the text. I look forward to sharing this story at the clinic, Dr Peta Lilley, Clinical Psychologist "A lovely children's book that well explains the death of a loved one and the grief and loss that may follow. It gently guides them through questions and feelings that they might experience. I highly recommend this book for children aged 4 and over." Esther Elliot Professional Counsellor "My eight year old daughter loved it. And because it ends on a positive perspective, she wasn't weighed down from the heaviness of the topic, she was uplifted by the excitement of life's possibilities." Caity Longmire, Grief and Loss Counsellor.
