This beautifully illustrated, therapeutic picture book tells the story of Stan the giraffe. Stan loves the sun and to feels its warmth on his long back; but one day it suddenly and unexpectantly falls from the sky and disappears from his life. Stan experiences many different and difficult emotions throughout the story, reflecting the seven stages of grief. The story aims to normalise these feelings, which for children and those around them, can be frightening.

This story book has been written to support key adults in helping bereaved children to find a way to cope, manage, and make it through their grief.

The resource Supporting Children through Bereavement and Loss has been written to accompany the story book, providing information, guidance and ideas for anyone supporting a grieving child, in school or at home.
