Families coping with grief

The loss of a family member can be an incredible blow to a family and loved ones, but when it comes to telling young children, and helping them understand grief, loss can be hard  to explain.

Drawing on his own experiences, the children's author Mark Lemon explores this in his latest book. It's called 'The Magical Wood' and it aims to help families who are coping with grief or anticipating the death of someone they love.

And Mark's story - The Magical Wood - is out now.
