Scarlet Says Good-Bye

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

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.
