The window

Gehl, Laura2022
This is a beautifully told story about losing a loved one. A touching exploration of grief and the difficult emotions surrounding death, The Window is a beautiful reminder that those we love will always be with us. All the other windows in the hospital look out on dull, grey buildings, but Daria and her grandpa can see the beach from the window in his room. Whenever Daria visits, she and her grandpa sit and watch crashing waves, flying kites, and happy families. Daria hopes for the day she and Grandpa will be able to visit the beach and build sandcastles together. The surprise twist at the end of the book offers a light-handed yet emotional punch, showing how even in the darkest places, hope can be found. Accompanied by notes for parents and guardians written by Dr Sharie Coombes, child and family psychotherapist, on how to support children who are experiencing a bereavement.
