Books and films can be a useful way of naturally introducing the subject of loss and death, helping children to better understand ....

'They all felt awkward and unhappy suddenly because it was a sort of goodbye they were saying, and they didn't want to think about it.

'Yes', said Pooh.
'When I'm ... when ... Pooh!'
'Yes, Christopher Robin?'
'I'm not going to do nothing anymore'
'Never again?'
'Well, not so much. They don't let you'.
Pooh waited for him to go on, but he was silent again.
'Yes, Christopher  Robin?' said Pooh helpfully.
'Pooh,when I'm ... you know, when I'm not doing Nothing, will you come up here sometimes?'
'Just me?'
'Yes, Pooh'
'Will you be here too?'
'Yes Pooh, I will be really, I promise I will be, Pooh'.
'That's good,' said Pooh.
'Pooh, promise you won't forget about me, ever. Not even when I'm a hundred.'
'I promise.'
'Pooh, whatever happens, you will understand, won't you?'

Then Christopher Robin called out, 'Pooh'.
