A gentle story about loss, lasting love and remembrance that will move hearts.

The Forever Kid is a powerful picture book tackling the complex subject of grief from a child’s perspective. The

are always connected even when relationships change. This story about the strength of family love is gently told

By continuing Johnny’s favourite party traditions, and sharing special memories, the family feel a sense of
closeness and comfort on this day of remembrance. They will always cherish Johnny, their Forever Kid.
