You Still Live in My Heart – About Grief and Loss

Jennie Persson & Elin Lindell

The book is based on interviews with children of different ages, gender and origin about grief and loss. We get to meet Charlie who has not been able to cry as much as he wanted and says he never understood how sick his father was; Rosa who tells us of the loss of her dog Kurre and the move to another city. We meet Esmeralda who was only four years old when her mother became ill with cancer and survived it. We meet Freya who mourn her cat who seemed like a sibling in the family, Leia who goes to visit her little brother at the cemetery and Amir who has lived with a sick father all his life, but says his family is good today, although they lost a person they loved. “I’m sorry he died so early, but I think he is pretty ok now.”

A psychologist talks about how you react when you mourn and how to think in order to move on and a funeral director objectively review what happens when someone is buried.

Richly illustrated in colour by Elin Lindell.
