Moving on with your life when someone dies can seem difficult and scary. It is hard not to see, feel, and touch your loved one the way you did before they died, but it can be comforting to know you can continue to share with your loved one in a new way.

Written through the eyes of a young child, the POPPO Books help children understand the progression of terminal illness and eventual death. They share in one of life's greatest challenges. Follow alongside, as they journey to heal grief and loss.

POPPO'S MESSAGE OF HOPE
Poppo reminds us to find joy within each moment of our lives. He shares with us how the love we hold in our hearts is always present despite the many challenges facing children and death. He teaches us to cherish the bonds of love that will continue to grow even after the death of a loved one.
