The Little Book of Bereavement for Schools is written by best-selling author Ian Gilbert together with his three children. It is a very personal account of the way educational institutions tried and succeeded, tried and failed and sometimes didn't try at all to help William, Olivia and Phoebe come to terms with the death of their mother.

Several months after their mother's death BBC's "Newsround" aired a brave and still controversial programme in which four children talked about their losses. This prompted Ian and his children to sit down and think about their own experiences and draw up a list of dos and don'ts that could help steer schools - and indeed all professionals working with children - towards a better understanding of what is needed from them at such a difficult time. The warmth of reception of this initial fifteen-point handout led the family to expand their advice and suggestions into what has now become The Little Book of Bereavement for Schools, the proceeds of which will go to Nicky''s Way in Suffolk.


Ian Gilbert is an award-winning author and editor, a leading educational speaker and entrepreneur and a man who the IB magazine named as one of its top 15 educational 'visionaries'. He established Independent Thinking in 1994 as a platform for leading practitioners to share their work in bringing the best out of all children. Currently based in Hong Kong, he has lived and worked in the UK, South America and the Middle East and so has a special perspective on classrooms and systems, what works and what definitely doesn't.
