Olive and Babyland

by Marchie Bracken
Publication Date: 16/11/2016
When five-year-old Olive learns that Samantha's grandmother has died, she goes to her daddy and asks what dying is. In order to answer her question, Olive's daddy tells her a tale from when he was a little boy about a baby bird that had fallen out of its nest. The story of what happens next helps Olive understand that death is about love.

This children's story seeks in a loving, ecumenical, and sensitive way to help children understand what death is.

"March Bracken has, again, articulated death in a manner that is light and natural. Discussions of death can be just as difficult with adults as with children. This story breathes its 'love light' onto a topic we find so challenging to approach. ... I can absolutely see how this soft tale of a child and her father could positively impact those dealing with stages of dementia. The story is refreshing, brief and honest."
--Tricia James, LCSW, hospice social worker

"In Olive and Babyland, March Bracken has written a tender and evocative tale of death and rebirth for children and their adults, a tale that explains death in gentle words and images that speak in 'love light.'"
