Scarlet Says Good-Bye

An Activity Book for Kids When a Loved One Enters Hospice Care

When a child has to say good-bye to someone she loves, the process can be easier with a friend at her side. Join Scarlet, her best friend Elby, and the critter gang as they say good-bye to someone Scarlet loves. Follow them as they learn about hospice services and do some activities along the way. This beautifully illustrated, hardcover edition will become a treasured family keepsake. Use it to remember your child’s thoughts and save it to share years later.

Christine Thompson, director of creative programs at UnitedHealthcare, created this keepsake hardcover book to help young kids understand hospice services and ease the process of saying good-bye to someone they love.

Includes a story about Scarlet, activities, journal page, and place to write a letter to a loved one.
