Granny Mo’s children’s picture books help to answer those BIG questions that children ask about death and dying and loss. This is why the books are a precious and vital resource for any home, nursery and school library.
Is Teddy Going to Die?
Jack has a BIG question about Teddy, which is keeping him wide awake. He wants to know if Teddy is going to die one day, but he’s not sure who to ask about it. This is where Granny Mo comes to the rescue. She knows just what to say and how to say it so Jack and Teddy can snuggle up together and go to sleep.
