Children find grief difficult, and understanding where a loved one has gone can be a tricky topic to explain...
Billy misses his mummy very much. She lives in the clouds. Some days the sun is shining and Mummy's clouds are nowhere to be seen. Those are Billy's favourite days. He and Daddy would play in the garden all day long, and Billy knows that Mummy is letting the sun shine for them. But not all days are like that. Sometimes Mummy's clouds are dark, and Billy feels sad and alone.
This moving and sensitively-written picture book gently explores grief and teaches children how to deal with their emotions surrounding the death of a loved one. With beautiful and colourful illustrations to accompany the touching narrative, this children's book is perfect for adults to share with their little ones and to help them understand what they are going through.
You don't have to weather the storm alone! The loss of a loved one can be a difficult topic to discuss with little ones, and this heart-warming book can help you support them through their stages of grief.
Follow Billy and his father as they navigate the loss of his mother through beautifully emotive illustrations and text:

- A sensitively-written narrative that helps children to process their grief and emotions
- Gentle full-page illustrations that allow children to become immersed in the story
