God for it

There was an excellent edition of Go For It on Radio Four this evening featuring Michael Rosen in conversation with some bereaved children. Rosen's son Eddy died several years ago now and he has written a book called the Sad Book. This is a book he wrote in a sudden tidal wave after a long dry period following his son's death. I'll certainly be looking it out!

What really impressed me was the way the programme enabled young people to talk about bereavement and death with adults and with other children. Michael Rosen writes some great poetry and he reads it to make it even better. Go and have a look!
