Monkwood Recommends

This week, Miss Hayes recommends ‘The Memory Tree’ by Britta Teckentrup.

A beautiful and heartfelt picture book to help children celebrate the memories left behind when a loved one dies. ❤

This book has helped me so much on a personal note over this past week, if you are ever looking for a book to help a child through grief this is a must.
“Fox has lived a long and happy life in the forest, but now he is tired. He lies down in his favourite clearing, and falls asleep forever. Before long, Fox’s friends begin to gather in the clearing. One by one, they tell stories of the special moments that they shared with Fox. And so, as they share their memories, a tree begins to grow, becoming bigger and stronger with each memory, sheltering and protecting all the animals in the forest, just as Fox did when he was alive.”
This gentle story about the loss of a loved one is perfect for sharing and will bring comfort to both children and parents.
